Our launch night fuelled by beer and cakes!
The paint brushes are cleaned and the brown paper in the window is down. Home byKirsty opened its doors to the public on August 21st 2014 to reveal beautifully designed products; lovingly curated by lighting and homeware designer-maker Kirsty Patrick; showcased in an unique interior designed, made and fitted by us! Nestled within Cardiff’s vibrant Castle Arcade, directly opposite the popular Coffee Barker; Home byKirsty occupies the ground floor, while we’ve taken residence in a shared studio space on the balcony.
Not being ones to whisper, we’ve been sure to shout about our ventures! Joined by our support network of friends, families, colleagues and associates; our official ribbon-cutting launch event last week [Thursday 11th September] was an opportunity for us to thank those who’ve helped us along our respective start-up journeys; to introduce ourselves to local businesses; and to share our achievements and excitement for the future with everyone. The atmosphere on the night was as electric and vibrant as the ideas that got Ongl Design+Make and Home byKirsty off the ground; fuelled by Pipes artisan beer and Cup & Cakes Bakery yummy bakes, all kindly sponsored by FabLab Cardiff and Interface UK.
