Any old iron – or goggles or clocks or corsets…?

You know that tin that you have in the shed or garage that has all of the bits and bobs of broken things that you were going to mend but never got around to it? Well we’d love to take it off your hands and use the contents to make beautiful artwork. Old door locks, bits of plumbing, broken watches or clocks, damaged jewellery, that bit of metal off that thing that fell off the wotsit called, bits of engine, chain or whatever – we can use almost anything!
Please just give me a call on 07522 019454 or drop me an e-mail at and I’ll arrange to pick it up.

PS don’t worry about giving your tin of stuff away – you can start a new one straight away.
