Hi, I’m Rosie, and I’m the creative force behind The Rustic Woodshack.
My creative journey began when I decided I wanted to make some art for my own home. I’ve always been pretty arty and resourceful, and as my husband is a woodworker we always have various bits of wood hanging around the home. So one day I decided to experiment.
I made a sign for my living room at home, and I was really pleased when I started to get lots of positive comments about it from friends and family when they came to visit. Then a friend asked if I could make one for her, and so I did. Then someone else asked, and someone else….
The next step was to start selling my signs at the markets. I’ve been a regular at the local markets in and around Nelson for a few years now, and I love the buzz from meeting people who buy my signs and who love what I do.
The Rustic Woodshack is a real family business. My husband’s woodworking expertise and knowledge has been invaluable in helping me to create my range, and the help I get from our two small boys means there’s never a dull moment!
If you’d like to buy one of my signs, or have something custom made, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
