Handmade Design Studio showcases the wealth of talent among Irish designers and makers and highlights ways that people can have unique and beautiful gifts and interiors at affordable prices. In addition to the range of textiles, ceramics, candles, lighting, jewellery and wood pieces, the shop includes a series of small room sets designed to inspire you to furnish and enhance interiors in creative ways.
In a world that has become jaded with mass production and global anonymity of products made on large scale production lines, Handmade Design Studio offers a refreshing new outlet for unique hand crafted pieces that come from the hands of Irish based artists. In addition to having or giving exquisite craft pieces that are designed to last, the customer also has the satisfaction of knowing that their purchase will reinvigorate the local economy and contribute to the sustainability of Irish enterprise.
Handmade Design Studio is the Midlands supplier for Annie Sloan Chalk Paints™. These decorative paints, the most environmentally respectful paint products on the market, make it possible to revive furniture and interiors without the use of primers or oil based paint products and as such do not ‘cost the Earth’.
Claire, the shop owner, is a qualified and experienced interior designer and life-long devotee of craft work. She will be running chalk paint and home decor workshops that will enable participants to develop their own inimitable interior design style and creativity.
