WOODFEST COUNTRY SHOW
Upcycled wooden & glass furniture & ornaments - Location Outside Trade Stand
Jazzy Junk was established in the Spring of 2014 by myself and wife Michelle, the concept and inspiration emerged from several years of attending Woodfest Wales and similar events where the most imaginative arts and crafts can be found.
We had always had a passion for creating unusual items and as we were becoming more aware of the need to reuse and recycle it emerged that maybe we could utilise waste and abandoned items and upcycle them into new attractive and functional items. There is definitely something wholesomely satisfying about retrieving an old lamp from a land fill destination and adding a few pieces of driftwood to completely change its appearance into a bespoke functional piece.
The vast majority of our products are constructed from items such as wood pallets, old floor boards, beach driftwood and beer and wine bottles.
In our first year we constructed everything at our home in South Wales, but due to the volume and demand of our products we secured a small factory unit where we remain at present.
We have been very fortunate through the diversity of our small business, to have been involved with local community groups delivering upcycling courses where the participants have not only learned new skills which is fantastic in its self, but more importantly become more aware of the need for global sustainability and we believe that upcycling is something we could all learn to help reduce waste.
