It was a matter of space that allowed Justin Dressler to finally realize his passion and start working with wood.

Justin, along with his wife, Sahana, moved to Alliston in 2022 from Kitchener, and with more space, he expanded his hobby of woodworking to make it into a business venture. He named his company Wren’s Workshop.

Justin has always had a love for this craft and uses his talents to create many beautiful works of art.

Justin is what he describes as a ‘culturally Deaf man.’ He graduated from the Ernest C. Drury School for the Deaf and then travelled to British Columbia to work for two years.

Sahana and Justin met in Milton while both were working at the Bob Rumball Canadian Centre of Excellence for the Deaf.

The name ‘Wren’s Workshop’ comes from their son, Aadi Wren Dessler’s, middle name. Sahana comes from an Indian background, and in Hindu culture, Aadi means ‘first or beginning,’

‘Wren’ comes from the songbird of the same name.

Working with wood provides Justin with a wide latitude of creative possibilities. He specializes in laser engraving on wood products. He also accepts customer orders.

The products are unique and made with a high precision of detail. These include an American Sign Language puzzle board, ornaments, welcome signs, wooden wall signs and custom orders.

Justin and Sahana bring their products to local vendors’ markets, where people love the custom work and attention to detail.

They also have their products on Etsy and sell directly on social media.

The products make unique Christmas gifts and can be used all year round.
