John Krohn is a wonderful artist who makes traditional handmade wooden toys and some home ware and he sells these at various markets, including the Northey Street Sunday Organic Farmers Market.
“My beautiful handmade wooden toys are good and safe for children to play with because they are made from natural timber with no paint, no oil, no lacquer, no stain or varnish”, says John Krohn.
John says he likes being a part of our friendly market and really appreciates when people acknowledge how well his toys are made and when they say they love them and purchase one.
The Woodkraft toys and home ware are produced with the greatest of care. John’s professional background is in wood machining and he uses many exotic species of timber offcuts, such as Rosewood, Kwila, American Rock Maple, and Cedar, just to mention a few. Being very conscious of the environment, John puts the safety and health of children as priority as they play with these beautiful hand crafted toys.
“None of my toys are stained or varnished. All are natural timber and I avoid using nails and or screws where possible. My main reward is to see children playing with the toys and for them to get many years of enjoyment. I am always ready to listen to new ideas and welcome special custom orders”, says John.
So if you have a child that you want to purchase a gift for, why not make it a special gift from an artist with a huge heart and magnificent talent. Custom Orders mean you can get something crafted that is one of a kind! Although everything John makes is one of a kind.
Get to the markets this Sunday and check out his stall and his wonderful work and make a purchase, so that he can continue to see many children playing with his lovely toys.
John has a heart of gold and he also volunteers at the Prince Charles Hospital.
