Hi, I’m Rachael, owner of Orcwood and maker of things found on this website.

I live in the suburb of Maribyrnong, which is in the Inner West suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia with a bloke and our two boys.

I have been hawking my wares in the rain, hail and sunshine at makers markets around Victoria for a few years now and in mid 2015 co-created a small biz called Far Fetched Designs;  a pop up retail store that stocks only handmade and locally designed goods.  Our model is structured so that small makers that do very limited runs have the opportunity to sell their goods in a retail environment.  It’s only open in small intervals at a time, but if you’re a Melbourne local, look us up on Facebook or Instagram at FarFetchedDesigns to find out when we’re open next.  When the shops open, you’ll find all of the available Orcwood range there.

I do lots of custom work too, so if you can’t find quite what you’re after here, feel free to send me an email and test my mad skillz. 

Oh, and if you were wondering - the name Orcwood is a play on the word awkward..  Yeah, you kinda need to say it out loud to get it.

Thanks for reading this far.  I’m pretty impressed – gold star for you!
