A Blackburn firm that designs rides for a Swedish theme park, a baker who has given the humble pie a new lease of life and the UK’s first community rock pub – it’s all in the new By Skill & Hard Work.
The By Skill & Hard Work zine aims to help publicise the creative talents of people who live, work or play in the borough.
This issue looks at people who have reinvented themselves or taken their business in a completely new direction.
It includes a feature on Darwen baker, Dean Haworth who is the brains behind the Thai Pie company and the soon to be opened Community Clothing shop, a new venture by fashion designer Patrick Grant from TV’s Sewing Bee.
There’s also an interview with the owner of Quarry Fold Studio that is the creative force behind a theme park in Gothenburg and an article on the volunteer group reopening The Napier as the UK’s first community rock pub.
