Delectable Dioramas – Liberty Open Call

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. 



Papier Mâché and Fleece Dogs Great & Small

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.


Happy New Year 2018

New Year Message 2018

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
