Launch Party!

To celebrate the opening of our Eco-Boutique we're having a Launch Party on 9th September...

...and you're all invited!

Come celebrate with us with lots of tasty Kopparberg and scrumptious nibbles, have the first peek at our Eco-Boutique, first chance to get your hands on some our amazing independent eco-friendly products and take part in lots of interactive community art happening throughout the evening.

AND if that wasn't enough, Becca Thomas from Pidgin Perfect will have her MArch Thesis exhibition on display for you to have a gander at too!

We're looking forward to seeing you all.

With thanks to Kopparberg (we love you).

Well, I think it's safe to say that Summer is no more. With rain being more frequent & the nights getting darker, Autumn is just around the corner. We need to make sure that all our favourite little birdies have a nice cosy place to live, and this week's Favourite Friday would make any feathered friend happy...

These hand-made birdhouses are made from reclaimed wood & come in a variety of different designs.

We LOVE it.

On the look-out

We're on the search for some lovely new eco-friendly work to stock both in our online shop & our Eco-Boutique, which opens in September.

We're on a mission to find eco-friendly handmade crafts & artwork created by talented designer/maker/artists. I don't know about you, but it seems to be the case that when we've searched for eco-friendly things in the past it tends to be hippy-tastic, mumsy, bleugh. Well, we want to put a stop to that. We want to show that eco-friendly wares can offer unique design, immense talent & quirkiness.

So if you use recycled, reclaimed, fair-trade, organic, vegan, upcycled, biodegradable or reused materials when making your pieces then we want to hear from you!

Illustrators! We'd really like to stock more original artwork, start using recycled paper/card!

If you're interested send us an e-mail with a link/pictures of your work to:

You can have a look at our online shop here.

Starting From Stitch

Calling all craft beginners, Starting From Stitch is back!

Always wanted to learn how to sew, embroider & knit but don't know where to start? Starting From Stitch is the set of workshops for you.

As the poster says, it is a set of 4 workshops teaching you the basics in hand-sewing, embroidery and knitting. Each week you'll come home with a new skill & a lovely make made with your very own hands, including a fabric plushie, embroidered sketchbook cover & knitted purse.

(made by previous Starting From Stitch-ers Lindsay Finnie, Diana Jonsson & Rachel Somner)

On the last week you'll work together as a group, using your newly learnt craft skills to make a group project.

The next session of Starting From Stitch begins on 21st September and continues on 28th September, 5th & 12th October.

To book your space, click here to pay your £10 deposit, then just bring along £10 with you each week. This includes all tutoring, materials & nibbles.

So, DIY isn't as easy as we thought huh.

But we got there in the end!


(Thanks to Mr, Mrs & Master Joyce for the driftwood :))

We've also hung up some artwork...

So we're getting there.

We're sorting out the details for our wee launch party just now, more info coming soon...

(Psst, keep the 9th of September free)


As we prepare to open our wee Eco-Boutique in Ironbbratz, we're finding lots of lovely new stock to fill our newly made shelves with. To make room we'll be saying goodbye to this week's favourite Friday - these awesome laser-cut hand-shadow rings. They come in a whole range of different designs including a dinosaur, stag head, rabbit & swan. So hurry, click here & get them while you still can!

The last couple of days we have been sanding & painting.
We popped ourselves along to the charity shop & scored this dresser...

We used a whole bunch of elbow grease to sand it down & paint it & here's how it turned out...

We really like it & it'll be perfect for displaying lots of lovely handmade goodies in our Eco-Boutique!

It's been pretty rubbish weather here the last few days. We got absolutely soaked on more than one occasion.
However, rainy days are the best excuse to get your jammies on, curl up with your duvet & write some letters to your friends. 

Our Favourite Friday this week is just the thing for letter writing - it's an adorable stationery set with writing paper, envelopes and a pencil. We love the bear mountain emblem at the top & you can even write your own message in the banner! Cute.

Get your set here.

Big News!

The time has come to spill the beans...

We now have a shop/workshop space!!

We are so so so excited.

Our space is part of the amazing Ironbbratz HQ which houses a whole host of different artists/designers/photographers/writers and their studios along with a lovely exhibition space.

Community is a massive part of who we are so moving into a space that has such a strong community vibe is totally perfect for us. Be sure to check out Ironbbratz and all the amazingly talented people that have a space there too.

Want to see our space?

So it's a bit bare just now, but look!

We have a hatch!

We'll be working hard over the next couple of weeks in order to open in September.
We'll keep you updated every step of the way!


Logo Design

We are Wolf Bones.

We used to be called i heart... but times are a-changing! We came up with the name i heart... never imagining that we would transform into a massive smorgasbord of craft workshops, projects, events, online eco-shops... Never in our wildest dreams. But we're damn proud that we have. So we think it's time to change our name to fit who we are now & will continue to be in the future.

Wolf Bones. Like it? We do. 
A random name, you may think. But, did you know that wolf bones are used to find out environmental changes in the Earth's climate? Like tree rings. And as you know, we're all about helping the planet. Plus bones are at the core of our bodies and connect & work together to make something awesome. Which is what we aim to do - encourage people to use their raw creativeness to collaborate & create amazing things. Plus, we like wolves. They are nice.

With a new name comes a new logo. And guess what? Yes, that's right, we'd like you to design it!
As with all our projects, anyone is welcome to take part, whether you're a professional artist or someone that just likes doodling on the edges of the newspaper.

  • The logo must include the text 'Wolf Bones'.
  • Entries must be in by 15th August.
  • Feel free to experiment and be as random as you like in your design, but if you're struggling remember our organisation is all about being eco-friendly, making the arts accessible to all & encouraging collaboration.
Send your submissions to for the chance to win a £30 gift voucher to use on anything in our online eco-shop as well as lots & lots of exposure. We'll pimp you out big time.

Cannot wait to see what you come up with!
