We are looking forward to taking part in this years Festival of Making in St George’s Hall, Blackburn on 12th and 13th May 2018.
From this Saturday 3rd March – 4th April we will be taking part in an art exhibition for a month at the lovely Astley Hall Farm House Gallery, near Chorley. The exhibition looks at the use of art, design and crafts for mental health well being, illness and recovery. 7 artists are participating in the show and the mayor of Chorley will be officially opening the show at 11am with craft stalls, activities and face painting.
Here’s a selection of some of our latest vintage dioramas. We were delighted to have been considered for the shortlist in the recent Liberty Open Call for makers out of 9,500 applicants. We didn’t make the shortlist of 10 but were over the moon to have been in the running.
We have a new range of Papier Mâché and Lambs fleece dogs in a variety of sizes and will be making different breeds to add to the terrier pack. Here’s just a tater. I will be adding dimensions and prices in the coming days. We also accept commissions.

We salute 2018 with a cup of Lemsip in one hand and a glass of Cava in the other! It has been an intense end to an exciting year full of new opportunities, challenging collaborations, a few media features and favoured regular events. We have met so many lovely people in our ventures this year both customers, clients and fellow makers, we think you are FABULOUS! We may be under the influence of flu but Bonker*s Clutterbucks would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a joyful and exciting new year, with great health, sustainable wealth and much happiness X X X X
