Thank you for you interest! During the current coronavirus pandemic, we are not accepting any help.

We are an artisan couple who are looking for help in our sewing studio and wood workshop as well as with various projects that come up (for example in the past we have had help repairing and replacing our decks, weeding and tidying the garden and property, replacing a ceiling, a small construction project, doing inventory, loading and unloading for market and more). You do not need any particular experience but you need to have an eye for detail and be willing to learn. We make wooden toys and household goods as well as hand sewn hats and hand woven scarves that we sell at market from April to October and at hand-made fairs in November and December. Our usual working hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm with an hour for lunch.

We are a vegetarian household and all meals and snacks are included. You prepare your own breakfast and lunch and we usually eat dinner together. We expect you to clean up after yourself and keep your sleeping area tidy and help out with housecleaning once a week. You will sleep in the studio building but have full access to the house. During the summer it's possible that you can sleep in the house or in a tent on the front deck or even in our campervan beside the house. Our house is simple and small and we all share one bathroom. We have two cats who live in the house and go outside. We have wifi. We are located near the Fulford ferry where you can catch a public bus to town. Salt Spring Island is a great place if you like nature and a quiet life.

During most of the year we can host 1 or 2 people and during the summer we can host up to 6. The longer you stay, the more you will learn and will be able to do. We are looking for helpers who can preferably stay for at least 3 or 4 weeks. (Past helpers have stayed for up to 6 months.)

If you have any questions please get in touch with us!
