Wheatcroftwillow

category: Basketry   

region: Midlands   

My name is Rachel Evans and I am a basketmaker, working mainly in willow. I grow some willow myself and I use a few local growers for unusual varieties as well as growers in Somerset. I also love to forage in the woods near my workshop in the gorgeous Churnet Valley for hazel, rush, bark and grasses.

I specialise in traditional English baskets, for kitchen and garden, classic designs that have stood the test of time. I trained with Adrian Charlton of Norfolk. More recently I am developing my own style using colour, twisted branches, or more unusual shapes. I am particularly in love with frame baskets, sturdy and strong.

I also make large and small animal sculptures and other forms in willow for home and garden, both for private commissions and organisations such as the National Trust. My price range is from £30 for a small basket to £1000 for my larger sculptures.

address: Wood and Willow Workshop, Froghall Wharf, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire Moorlands, ST10 2HJ. (Opening times vary, please check before you visit. )

Whitethorn Woodcraft

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South West   

Glenn White and Kelley Hann handcraft bespoke furniture using reclaimed or sustainably sourced wood in their workshop near Haytor, Dartmoor.

With a background in the traditional timber framed building industry, we use time honoured techniques to create fresh, contemporary designs. The majority of our pieces are joined with mortise and tenon joints then secured using oak pegs. We believe that our furniture should not literally cost the earth, preferring hand tools and sourcing materials locally.

We love character in our materials. Awkward grains, knots, splits and cracks are a beautiful distraction from the homogeny of mass production, a stamp of natural authenticity.

Whitlock Wooden Designs

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: Midlands   

I primarily work with wood or resin making a wide range of pens. Beautiful pens crafted with exotic woods or something a little more involved with segmented designs. Working with resin enables me to achieve stunning colours or encapsulate some really odd things for a novelty pen. This takes up most of my time but I have a big interest in all areas of woodwork and when time allows making wooden boxes or wooden intarsia.

address: Northampton.

Wilde Works

region: Midlands   

Drawing inspiration from social and global issues, I translate them into minimalist pieces of contemporary jewellery that convey messages about peace, equality and the environment. As a designer/maker I work mainly in Sterling silver, adding colour and interest with resin and gemstones. All my pieces are handmade using traditional methods and techniques, combined with 3D CAD design technology.

My collection to date includes kinetic rings, and two minimalist Sterling silver and resin ranges called First Exploration and Snapshot 2016. I am currently working on a new range called Beyond the Horizon, which incorporates aesthetic influences from the other side of the world to symbolise the harmony many of us strive for. I also work to commission and provide CAD design services.
