Hi, i'm Beth. I started the business whislt still in my teens. I attended drama school just north of London where I studied Musical Theatre. After gaining an agent and auditioning I set up my business selling bathbombs at fairs on a weekend to try and make a living.
Within 3 months I had a full time stall at what was Handpicked Hall in Ripon and quickly decided the theatre industry was not for me and retail was!
I then took the plunge and moved into our shop in 2014.
Move on 6 Years and we now have 3 lovely members of staff alongside my Husband who is partner to the business.
We developed our concept to sell online through the covid-19 pandemic as we were determined not to be closed - Orders are now sent everyday from our shop!
Alongside meeting My husband (king of the spreadsheet!) we now also have our shop dog - Withnail the cocker spaniel and our little baby boy.
We have worked hard to create our letterbox gifts and own products which are all made in the UK, Vegan friendly, Never animal tested and use only Natural ingredients.
My mum is a leading British Artisan Designer - Julie Dodsworth. Her deisgns have been taken on with companies such as Barbour clothing! Alongside her designs we create our own products which are sold to other shops all over the world.
Our new name 'The Artisan's Daughter' is inspired from my mum being an artisan designer and myself owning a retail in store and online business.
With both the shop and creating our own products we support many UK artisan manufactorers such as candle makers, biscuit bakers and stationery printers.
We hope you like our products and our ethos!
Beth, Olly and the Team at The Artisan's Daughter
