Our Artists - Hans Branderhorst

Hans-Made Crafts and Toys are produced locally by Hobby Woodworker, Hans Branderhorst.

As a retired person, I am doing what I love to do, using my God-given talents to work with wood. Toys and games that go back in time have long been a favourite of mine and I enjoy not only making the items, but also get pleasure from knowing how much fun the children receiving the toys will have playing with them.

My favorite wood is pine. Great care is taken to ensure that the items are safe, especially for small children. I am constantly designing new items, so check back from time to time to see what's new. My personal favourite to make is the rocking horse shown. These are usually special order.
