A little about me

Hi! I’m Haylee Dugmore a proud dog mum of 2 Jackie girls and 1 Rottie boy and an entrepreneur.

I love reading, a good run and spending time with the furkids. My new found hobby is dog training as is so rewarding when the pooches respond! I also love music and recently picked up my sax after a few years.

I live in Kirstenhof with my partner, Jonathan.

A little about my business

I am the owner and artisan at Cassie’s Workshop since April 2015.

Cassie’s Workshop is named after Cassie, my gorgeous Jack Russell girl who turned 11 this past year.  She is my most favourite squish and always at my side. The team has grown a bit since we started with Archie the Rottie and Sky the Jack Russell joining in the last 2yrs.

Cassie’s Workshop began when I still worked full time. Having been inspired by a woman whom I’d met in a small town, I began working on my own pieces in my spare time. Turns out, I am quite good at it and very soon made the decision to do this full-time!

Together, we breathe new life into older furniture pieces with love and colour! Many of the pieces we have in our home are inherited or out of date with current more contemporary styles. Upcycling older pieces is a way to ‘use what we have’ rather than buying new and also a means to reduce ones carbon footprint.

We are stockists for Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint, the fastest growing chalk paint brand in southern Africa.
Our service also includes upholstery, modifications, paint technique workshops and kitchen makeovers.
