A working studio creating unique pieces for you. See our range of handwoven textiles, and handmade furniture. Come meet the people creating the work, have a try on a loom, see the workshop through the big window. Situated on the Great Taste Trail in a bright yellow building.
JointWorks Studio was set up in 2010 by Tony and Jane Clark. The goal was to make handmade items that bring joy to people's lives.
In the 1913 building that was the general store for the area, you will see Jane working. You will see work for sale, and through the back window you will see Tony working on his latest piece. When you visit, you will see the building has been renovated in 2016 and now is light, airy, warm and complements the work. A great place to visit in winter as well as summer.
There are two working looms usually with only one in use at a time. Jane produces various handwoven items including scarves, wraps and tea towels. There is also a small table loom set up with instructions if people wish to try their hand at weaving
On the back wall there is a large window where people can view the woodworking area, see the machines, the wood and the projects in their various stages of completion. Tony makes furniture on request, and also has some in the studio for sale. He also makes smaller items such as endgrain platters, turned bowls and plates, and handcrafted small boxes
