TinkerMade: Handcrafted in Abingdon-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
Michelle and Phil have always enjoyed making and creating. Phil’s parents were potters, so he grew up with clay. He particularly enjoys crafting sculptural items. Michelle is more of a home-crafter. Her Granny introduced her to knitting and embroidery, and she has dabbled with many other crafts, including crochet, felting, macramé, card making, sewing and pebble art. Together, they started TinkerMade, an outlet for their shared creativity.
“We both have demanding day jobs, for us TinkerMade is our therapy. Everything we sell is made by us, with a whole heap of love.”
