As The Workshop becomes part of the community, people are realising that we can turn their ideas into reality. Our creativity, combined with a working knowledge of design, materials and manufacturing techniques, means that we can find a workable solution to most of the ideas that walk in our door.
Take Craig Forsythe, founder of Motion Coaching (MoCo) and freelance outdoor instructor with Beyond Adventure, who got married in Aberfeldy in May. With three days to go before The Big Day, Craig popped in to The Workshop with a set of eight Opinel pocket knives that he was going to give to his best men and ushers. Could we engrave them to make them into a special memento for each person? We certainly could! Less than 30 minutes later, Craig left The Workshop, a happy and excited groom to be, with eight personalised knives detailing a name, their title for the day and the wedding date. Little did he know that The Workshop had also engraved a plaque for a garden ‘Love Seat’ which was to be a wedding present from the team at Beyond Adventure. Another special memento for a very special day.
