  • Just dropping by to say Hello

    Hello Every one,

    My name is Gareth, I am a 45 year old widower living in Norwich, who enjoys a bit of Art & crafts every now and again, which keeps me sane.


    I like to make useful presents from household junk and matchsticks, and have recently taken up glass engraving. Albeit I'm still at the practicing on jam-jars stage.


    I also make a drop or two of home-made Mead , and the idea behind the engraving was to give my friends presents of a drop of my home-brew in specially engraved 2 litre glass jugs.

    Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.

    nothing better than using up old stuff that might otherwise end up in the bin!

    I've colected loads of stuff to recycle, can't understand why the rest of the family just call it rubbish!!

                          Thank you to all for such warm welcomes.

                            Hi Gareth

                            Nice to meet you, there's a lady in Alnwick who does wonderous arty things to stuff that she finds and recyles...a good angle to have if you ever fancy selling your wares.
