Many apologies for that!

And to further illustrate our lack of efforts in this department, please accept this final offering for the year (as posted in Instagram).  #killingtwobirdswithonestone #effectivetimemanagement #lazy

Manual Arts DEpt. Australian designer / makers

2017. So you're almost over (already). You threw us a couple of curve balls, some hard lessons and a few more grey hairs. But we sure did finish...

Mixed Business

Manual Arts DEpt. product designs
We're always excited and humbled to be able to create such a wonderful mixed bag of gifts for life's many and varied special occasions.
Personalised Longboard Australian Hardwood Serving Platters
It's so lovely to know that our wares are being unwrapped at engagements, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and housewarmings.
A big thank you to our customers for all your support.  And to the recipients, we hope you're enjoying...


The gift you've been "longing" for.....

We may live a few hours from the nearest beach these days, but that doesn't mean we don't love a bit of coastal enjoyment from time to time!

The newest addition to our range celebrates just that.  The Longboard Serving Platter is crafted from our beloved Spotted Gum Australian hardwood and offers a cool and casual share platter experience.

Perfect for effortless entertaining when guests "drop in" (surfing pun intended).
