If you fancy fish and chips or a brew in the cafe, the flags are out for the Quayside Gala! It’s another original artwork that we’ve designed and handmade for you, here at the Seaside Emporium.
It’s a one-off piece of original handmade art, painstakingly created from driftwood and bits and bobs.
First we’ve dreamed up the scene, planning each detail and how it fits together. Then each detail is meticulously cut and the pieces carefully assembled by hand. Have you noticed the lifebelt and the buoy? Both specially made to fit the scale of this model. The result is this lovely, unique coastal keepsake. A gift for someone special.
The driftwood is collected from Rossall beach outside our door at Cleveleys, on the NW coast of the UK. The buildings from reclaimed workshop waste wood.
The measurements are 200mm tall x 200mm wide x 100mm deep from front to back.
The Lighthouse on the Quay will be sent out well packed, in a recycled cardboard box.
About our handmade art…
Miniatures models, keepsakes and curios are created by hand. We use driftwood and found objects washed up on the shore, together with reclaimed and recycled materials and workshop waste wood. It’s finished with a felt underside to prevent scratching.
They’re hand made by our artist Derek Littlewood – a representation of places and scenes he’s observed during a lifetime in art. We hope you enjoy them as much as he has enjoyed making them.
The driftwood is washed and cleaned before use and non-toxic paints are used. However these are not toys and must be kept away from children and animals. Suitable for indoor use only.
…and hand drawn paintings
Don’t forget that all of the paintings listed in the Seaside Emporium are also originally created by hand too. Take a look – we’ve got paintings of these kind of scenes too!
