The story of Angelic Hen…
Angelic Hen was started at the kitchen table fifteen years ago by artist Mari Hutchings. Inspired by her two young sons Mari designed and painted many colourful signs, peg boards and door hangers for her home and garden.
To keep up with orders, she enlisted the help of a team of mums. For the first few years, Angelic Hen products were cut out and painted in her garage.
As the range of products increased, Angelic hen made the move into larger premises and took on a team of professional artists. Angelic hen were one of the first companies to make signs for bedrooms and the home. They have worked with many leading companies includung National trust, Blooming Marvellous, Hamleys, Charlies, Vinegar Hill, Highclere castle and many others.
The Angelic Hen workshop is now based in the grounds of Wyastone Leys, a beautiful manor house in the Wye Valley not far from the picturesque town of Monmouth. With sweeping views down to the River Wye and deer grazing the parkland outside, Angelic Hen has stayed true to its rural roots.
The Painty Place has recently been opened at Angelic hen where you can paint your own products. Open Saturdays 10am to 3pm.
