Today we’re 1 year old.
Within a few weeks a friend put me in touch with Brian Curtis and we met for the first time on January 31st.
On February 19th I had my first brazing lesson with Brian.
By June 10th we had a stand at Bespoked Bristol, and our own website.
In September we had a 4 page article in Boneshaker Magazine.
On November the 1st we launched our crowd funding campaign.
By November the 6th we reached 100% of our funding goal.
To date 183 people have pledged money towards the project and 23 have pledged their skills and time.
We’ve raised over £40,000, booked up all of our courses for 2012 and have a very healthy waiting list .
We’re currently talking to another frame builder and have some really exciting partnerships lined up too.
All this has happened whilst juggling a full-time job and 2 other projects too.
Thanks for all the support over the past 12 months, to everyone who helped make things happen, who told their friend about us, tweeted, linked to us on facebook or pledged their money or time – it wouldn’t have happened with out you.
It’s been one hell of a ride so far and yet we’ve only just begun. So here’s to our second year…I can’t wait to see what lies ahead.
