1996. The year I decided to stop ironing 5 shirts on a Sunday evening and join the ranks of the self employed. At the time, it was unclear where this would lead, but a stall at the upcoming local Xmas market, whilst proving to be a valuable financial lesson, I knew the right choice had been made.
Since then, Drydock has grown from 3-d greetings cards to cardboard clocks, then driftwood, industrial salvage and reclaimed timber designs. The annual Christmas market still drives new designs and ideas, as well as gaining valuable customer feedback.
Between building stock to sell through galleries and markets (see image of Glastonbury Festival stall, 2016), I freelance making commercial and film models and undertake house renovations.
