Spooky display at Salon Ten!

We LOVE this Halloween themed window display at Salon Ten in Much Wenlock!  The salon is definitely Halloween ready!

The 2D polystyrene ghost and bat shapes are great to hang in the window with some thin cotton or nylon for a ‘floating’ effect!  We also love how the large hanging bat seems to be looking out of the window to passers by!

Doesn’t this glitter pumpkin look great covered with spiders’ web?!

At approx. 4ft high, the numbers are the perfect prop and are sure to make an impact.

Giant HOCKEY letters for the Women’s EuroHockey Championship II!

We recently produced these large colourful HOCKEY letters which were used at the Women’s EuroHockey Championship II, Cardiff in August this year.

At 5ft high, the letters were sure to create an impact at the event.  The letters were coated with a special coating to protect the them, and finished matt in a range of colours to match the Welsh flag.  Supplied with plywood bases, the letters also had pegs which were used to fix the letters to a grass surface, meaning the letters stood more stable on site.

We LOVE these photographs of the letters in use – they make great props for snaps and visitor engagement!

Thanks for sharing the great pics!

GrandFest presented by Royal Voluntary Service!

A throwback to last year when we produced these GRANDFEST letters for Royal Voluntary Service!  At approx. 4ft high, the letters make a great prop for outdoor events like GrandFest.

Grandfest2016-7294 Grandfest2016-7925

“GrandFest, proudly presented by Royal Voluntary Service, celebrates talented older people and the heritage skills that they can share with the younger generation.” 

“…each festival has been created for the older generation to share skills such as knitting, crochet, wood turning and bread making through a series of Masterclasses. Taking over museums, shops, cafés and bars each Masterclass will be led by a talented original GrandMaker, aged 70 or over.”
