We are coming to an end of our fourth week of Newstalk supporting local Irish businesses in the lead up to Christmas. We will be continuing to speak to a range of businesses right across the country that need our support. With thanks to the Local Enterprise Offices  - Look for Local this Christmas. Ambrose & Brid are a passionate woodturning duo - crafting decorative art, home pieces and  jewellery. The husband and wife partnership began woodturning in 1993 as a hobby and it quickly became their passion. Immersing themselves in their craft, they started the business in 2000 on a part-time basis, both teaching and wholesaling items to National Museum shops in Dublin and Castlebar. The business turned to full time in 2018 - combining teaching, wholesaling, retail, online selling and create bespoke corporate gifts and business awards. Since the beginning of Covid-19, the business has suffered significant loss in revenue - with turnover down 70% from last year. But since September, the business has picked back up mainly online through the help of initiatives such as being featured on The Gifted Show at the RDS and the Design and Craft Council Made Local campaigns.   Listen and subscribe to The Pat Kenny Show on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify.      Download, listen and subscribe on the Newstalk App.    You can also listen to Newstalk live on newstalk.com or on Alexa, by adding the Newstalk skill and asking: 'Alexa, play Newstalk'.
