Hampson Woods in The Observer Magazine

We were honoured to be part of this Sunday’s Observer Magazine story on the resurgence of carpentry and woodwork, joined by talented woodworkers John Eadon, George Winks from Temper Studio and Will Elworthy.

It was lovely to be in the company of likeminded folks and to speak with Emma Love about our experience building Hampson Woods and finding a place in the market where we are able to create beautiful, handmade homewares with good quality British timbers – properly made, long-lasting products – at an accessible price.

At times when it seems as though the shelves of our retail shops are filled with disposable, poorly made products built for profit, it is comforting to know that there are more makers and craftspeople giving consumers an alternative – and that there is a group of people interested in supporting the work of those of us who are mad enough to take on the challenge!
