While on maternity leave with her second child, marine scientist and mum of two Rhiannon Pipkin launched a new fun craft business inspired by spending quality time with her children thanks to support from business start-up experts, Outset Cornwall.
Feltosaur on Tour is a totally safe no-needle, dinosaur craft kit for young children to create their own felt dinosaur. But that’s not where the fun ends! Each pack comes with a map of the local area to inspire families to enjoy the great outdoors with their creations, “to craft and explore with your Feltosaur!”
The kit conforms to British Standards for toy safety,
Searching the internet for available support in setting up small businesses, Rhiannon came across Outset Cornwall. She was extremely impressed with the funded advice and guidance provided.
“I was really blown away by the level of support on offer. Going to the information sessions and workshops it was really helpful to be surrounded by other people in the same position, all incredibly enthusiastic and supportive with amazing ideas.”
For anyone else who would like to see their dream become a reality, Rhiannon has this advice: “Starting your own business is an exciting and unknown adventure. Just go for it and see where it takes you.”
