A Tri­umph of Mud­dling Through!

This England - - Editors Letter -

The Bri­tish Toy­maker’s Guild is in their own words, “a very Bri­tish Guild: a tri­umph of mud­dling through against all rea­son­able ex­pec­ta­tion. Con­sid­er­ing the tiny scale of pro­duc­tion of most BTG mem­bers, the ec­cen­tric na­ture of many of their toys and the very much more ec­cen­tric na­ture of many of the mem­bers them­selves, it is re­mark­able that this type of craft-based toy­mak­ing and the Guild have sur­vived so long.”

Twenty-four toy­mak­ers strong, it is the per­fect place for Christ­mas in­spi­ra­tion. Visit www.toy­mak­ers­guild.co.uk.
