We are very pleased to announce we have a new Stockist, in the form of The Collaborative Store in London.

Curated by owner Elena Todary, The Collaborative Store is a carefully chosen selection of independent makers and designers’ work including fashion, homeware and accessories. Based in Marylebone Village, the store is a beautiful bricks & mortar shop that attracts a wide variety of customers all interested in independent and under-the-radar brands.

Hammerton Brewery Tap Handles

Bespoke Tap Handles for Hammerton Brewery

Hammerton Brewery Tap HandlesRecently, we have completed several orders for Hammerton Brewery in Islington. Even more recently, they asked if we could design and create 30 Tap Handles for the different beers they offer. We were thrilled to be asked, as we love working on new products and we also love a challenge.

Hammerton Brewery

Originally beginning brewing in 1868, Hammerton Brewery is a microbrewery based in Islington brewing small batch beers.. After closing in the 1950s, it was reopened by a member of the Hammerton family in 2014 to bring brewing back to Islington. Today, the beers are influenced by global tastes, and are brewed using both modern and traditional brewing techniques and with the highest quality ingredients.

Hammerton Brewery Tap HandlesThe Tap Handles

The tap handles are created from Beech and are etched with the logo as well as the name of the specific beer on each. Beech itself etches beautifully, so anything marked into the wood always comes up looking great. For the threads that are inserted, we worked with Technifast to supply them, who were brilliant to work with.

We can’t wait to see the Tap Handles in situ, and look forward to continuing to work with Hammerton Brewery and the team there well into the future. If you’d like to work with us on a project, whether it’s Tap Handles or anything else, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

 

Craft Centre Leeds

William Firth Woodcraft & Craft Centre Leeds – Come Dine With Me Exhibition

Craft Centre Leeds

Craft Centre Leeds is an Exhibition Space and shop based in the centre of, you guessed it, Leeds! Established in 1982, every year there is a jam-packed programme of different exhibitions, where all work is on sale for customers to purchase.

A few months back we were asked by Craft Centre Leeds to be involved in their Summer exhibition. The exhibition we’ve been asked to be involved in orientates around something we all know and love…food! Artists and craftsfolk alike have collaborated for this exhibition with work ranging from ceramics to some rather familiar looking End Grain Chopping Boards.

Our Work Featured

My End Grain Chopping Boards will be in the exhibition alongside all the other fantastic work, some of which you might recognise if you saw the BUILD exhibition at Arteria in Lancaster earlier this year, amongst some fresh and exciting artists I’ve never heard of!

We’re always very honoured and excited to be part of exhibitions with other artists at these thriving hubs for craft collaboration and hope you’d enjoy and support it too. The exhibition starts on 1st July and runs through until 23rd September in the Craft Centre (opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10am-5pm, they are closed Sundays & Mondays) – if you go, let us know and we’ll be there ourselves over the Summer and we cannot wait!

If you’re running an exhibition and would like to include our work, get in touch!
