Skate Rumple Orkney 

Thanks to everyone who visited our Festive Shop – we had a lot of laughs, cake and catch-ups!

Now we’re closed, both on the farm and in the shop, for the first few months of the year.  We’re busy on the farm and taking care of our animals in these dark, drab months but we’re also crafting some creations too! 

Ellen’s Standing Stone Woodcut design available on Etsy in walnut or oak

We’re also busy crafting and designing our own creations. Keep an eye on our social media for updates and new products on Etsy. Our new Standing Stones Woodcut comes in either walnut or oak, with a colourful ribbon, to hang in your window and catch the sunset.

Handcrafted Bears and Boats

Mandy’s hand sews gorgeous artist mohair teddy bears, giving each one a name, date of birth, and little personality. Keep an eye on Etsy and social media for new teddy bears, as well as The Longship shop in Kirkwall who often takes care of a bear or two until they can find their forever homes…

Nick handcrafts beautiful driftwood and glass boats. He is keeping an eye on stormy seas – all the driftwood is picked at local beaches and each glass sail hand cut and crafted. Nick takes commissions for boats.  Each one is unique to the driftwood and glass it’s made from.

We had some fantastic competition entries and the winners have been chosen – here are their designs…

The Under 5 Winning Doodler thought Ty would like some extra snuggly slippers, gloves and a wee bobble hat to match his cosy jumper…

Very cute design by this Under 5 Winner

The second Winning Doodler drew this super fun gift idea, imagining Ty with a little pair of skis and a hill!

Super fun present by this Winning Doodler
