Lockdown has brought its fair share of challenges for business but one engineer is taking the opportunity to launch his business nationwide.
Steven Gray of Tawny Barn in Glossop took the time to work on his business and launch his arts and craft supplies across the country.
He said: “It is a big step for the business. I have been touring craft fairs for the past year and all of my designs have been really well received so this now takes the designs to the next level merging print designs with precise cut outs. It means I can make coasters which are completely bespoke. If you can think of a design, I can make it.”
Steve who has spent the last 30 years working as a service engineer started S Gray Engineering in the town in 2003.
For the last 15 years he has travelled to everywhere from South Africa, Nigeria, Syria, Canada and Greece to install and maintain bottle fillers and other production and packaging machinery.
In 2018 he took up his new venture and set up Tawny Barn selling MDF shaped cut outs for arts and craft projects.
This year he is looking to make more intricate designs available and is now offering printed and cut out designs.
Tawny Barn can create any shape in flat material and has even helped with laser cutting clothing patterns.
