Shop+Interview with Spring Bash artist Tyler of Wayne Works

Tyler is the craftsman and designer behind Wayne Works. His handcrafted furniture, lighting and home décor is created at his shop right here in Dallas.

You may remember his work from previous Bashes. “This is the first show that I have done in over a year and I am excited to meet new people and see familiar faces!” Wayne Works will have new live edge slab pieces for custom projects for this show. He said he looks forward to meeting new people and discussing new projects with those in attendance.

Tyler is a mechanical engineer by trade. “I am naturally creative and I find my engineering side helps with proper fabrication of my designs,” Tyler said. “My lean manufacturing background aids in taking objective looks at how I handle my business and challenging me to try something new or different to see how it works.”

“Conversations with fellow creatives is the best motivation for me,” Tyler said. “When you hear the passion in someone’s voice, it can be very inspiring, and makes me want to get to work in the shop.”

Stop by the Wayne Works booth and say hello to Tyler at the 2018 Etsy Dallas Spring Bash where you can shop the best handmade artists from near and far. We will be at Gilley’s 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, May 5, 2018. We’ll see y’all at the Bash!
