Welcome to our new Bricks and Mortar Shop!
Folly & Roses has undergone many changes over the past few months. Our bricks and mortar shop has now opened in the beautiful Georgian town of Holt, in North Norfolk
As a working studio, you can watch us create the items for sale in the shop. We also carry a selection of artisan goods created by other regional craftspeople, as well as our regular collection of new and vintage books!
A Unique Artisan Experience in North Norfolk
Here at Folly and Roses we design and create a colourful range of home-ware, wall art, jewellery and gifts.
Most of the products you see in the shop are made on-site. Our shop is very small, but what makes us special is that you can watch us crafting the products and ask us about how they're made or what materials we use.
To shop what we currently have available to buy online, please visit our Etsy shop HERE or use the tab in the menu above.
We’ve been making and using these on our own fires for years. The firelighters are made using natural and waste materials from our workshop. We use a cup from an old egg box, filled with wood shavings, dried flowers, used coffee grounds, plus any little scraps of fabric and cotton from the sewing room. As we fill the cup with dry matter we pour in melted soy wax. This is a by product from our candle making. We often have left over wax, or stubs from our wick trials going to waste. As such, the firelighters usually have some scent, but it’s often a mixture of whatever we’ve been recently making. It’s not unpleasant though and quite subtle. We use wick trimmings too, so the firelighters can be easily lit with a taper.
