Hand engraved Slate House signs

Tourism in our locality has started, meaning buzzyness… Even if you are in the area for a few days, pay us a visit and we’ll try to accommodate you; Yesterday Gerard made a House sign, ordered on Friday and it had to be finished after the weekend. He came out of his ‘hibernation’ of sitting & reading; gentle work is much better for him! All our house signs/house names are made from reclaimed slate and are hand engraved by Gerard. You can choose your own font.

Our Riverside Studio is open to visitors again. We will allow only one customer/group or family at one time in our Studio and hand sanitising is available. After your visit we will clean & disinfect the studio thorougly.     We are looking forward seeing you again,
