“I love this shop. It’s a showroom for a collective of local artists, but nothing like as bad as that sounds. It’s full of beautiful handmade or restored rugs, furniture, knitwear, ceramics, jewellery and toys. There’s a workshop proper adjoining it, so you can look through and wish you could create something lovely, too. When I grow up, I’m going to buy everything there.” Lucy Mangan for ‘Top of the Shops’, The Guardian 8 December 2012
“Bluejacket workshop and gallery…Housed in a wooden building which is divided in two, one half is the workshop making handmade furniture and the other is the gallery. Although quite small it is choc o bloc with interesting items such as textiles, millinery, jewellery,paintings, antiques and by today’s standards an unusual range of hand knitted children’s ganseys, hose and berets all guaranteed tickle proof. Their website is comprehensive and well photographed should you want to take a look.” Old Town, Holt www.oldtownnews.tumblr.com December 2012
“Daniel Loose finds something a little bit special on the edge of the marsh at Morston. Go and have a look and let Ned, Roberta and Nick tell you about this gorgeous little place…you may even get a piece of homemade cake and a cup of tea!” North Norfolk Living, Autumn 2012
“Bluejacket is the sort of place you go in for a nose around, and come out with an empty bank account. Among the locally made artistry there’s wonderful woodwork by Nick Hamond and tantalizing textiles by Saffron Paffron. An empty handed escape isn’t an option.” Blogs: North Norfolk’s Hidden Corners, www.wanderlust.co.uk July 2012
Please feel free to contact the shop if would like further information or to discuss a commission with any of our makers. All are happy to consider any personalised, unusual or challenging projects. Best wishes, Roberta, Ned, Nick, Wendy, Saffron and Luke.
