The inspiration and its creation
Visit us at our new site www.BritishIronworkCentre.co.uk
to explore and discover more about us and our fantastic product ranges.
The inspiration which led me to create this wonderful Ironwork Centre, was really quite simple.
Just four years ago, in 2008, my wife, Tracy, who is also a partner in our business, decided to set up a theatre company for amateur performers and singers, with the aim of raising money for our local community. Together we created a rehearsal studio, gained a hugely talented cast and to date, the Very Nice Production Company, as it was named has raised over £13,000.00, for Hope house hospice in Oswestry. They have also raised money for the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, which meant they were able to buy a huge water butt, for storing fresh, cheap drinking water. They have been able to attend lots of local fund raising events, singing and dancing their way into the hearts of the local community, whilst continuing to raise much needed monies for local causes, in and around Oswestry.
As a company, we are also very creative, and our passion is designing and redesigning fabulous new products, and bringing back to life many of the old and wonderful items of iron artwork that are no longer seen today. We have been able to delve deep, collect and recreate a huge range of stunning historical items, which would have been lost forever. Antique and vintage products, that are a joy to see and a delight to use.
Over the years we have had the pleasure of assisting many other companies and organisations, by providing them with artefacts, product and props, that we have been able to reproduce in stunning, and almost original quality.
We are proud to say, that many of our products can be seen in films, such as “Nanny McPhee, television, drama’s like “Emerdale”, and “Holly oaks” and including a brand new, and exciting drama coming to our screens in 2013 called “paradise Ladies”, where we were able to provide them with our exquisite Victorian lamp posts and lanterns.
Our stunning “lacework” Pavilions, gazebos and tree seats have also been featured with Mr Alan Titchmarsh, on “love your garden”, with the “Royal Alexandria” displayed at the renowned Grand Designs show, at the NEC in Birmingham.
Everything from larger than life animals, flowers and water features, through to almost anything you could wish for, for the home, garden and grounds, we have made.
Not only do we make strong, beautiful hardware, that is made to last, we have created delicate, fretwork, and hand wrought scroll work.
We now feel we can make an even bigger contribution to our local community by opening our doors and sharing what we do with anyone who would like to come along and see for themselves, the beauty that can be found in hand crafted products and the diversity of things that can be made using metal.
We hope to be able to offer a membership, with a nominal yearly subscription, that will allow people to visit whenever they wish, enjoy a lovely cup of tea or coffee and benefit from discounts and special offers on anything they wish to take away with them.
We can ensure they are kept up-to-date with regular newsletters, and information on our shows and exhibits around the country.
All monies raised through this scheme, will be donated back into our local community, and given wherever it is most needed.
We love, passionately what we do.
This wonderful resource, that can be recycled, time and again, is a fundamental part of our lives, and a product we cannot function without.
To be able to bring it to you, in a million different guises is our greatest joy!
