Who we are
Hello I’m Jennie mum of 2 boys and creator, maker & designer at Fern & Thistle, from my garden studio in Manchester.
I began Fern & Thistle in 2016 to create products people would not only want to buy but would make them feel happy, the thrill of seeing my work in peoples homes aways brings me joy and its this joy that makes me create more.
I source my wood from local scaffolding companies, and lovingly bring it back to life. Each product starts with sanding, cutting and waxing before lasering my design onto it.
My inspiration comes from nature around me, this alongside the tactile feel of the re clammed wood I use creates a very natural look and feel to my products, which are evolving all the time.
As well as the products on my web site I also offer bespoke pieces, like shelving. As each design is made to order I offer a service to alter sizes and wording where the product allows me to do so.
I have always had a passion for home decor and love filling my home with unique finds, my dream, in life was to become a maker of such items, Fern & Thistle has made this dream come true.
