We’re proud to introduce some new products to the Hampson Woods Range.
First of all we have a series of Chef’s Boards – these are aimed at serious cooks, and are designed with a particular emphasis on practicality as well as beauty. Finished in a hard-wearing natural oil, they will happily take the abuse that food preparation throws at them!
Currently available in 2 forms – a geometrically-minded Sycamore board with a removable leather strap, and a rectangular, delicately-contoured Ash board.
Secondly, we are happy to introduce a range of Centrepiece Boards – designed to add beauty to any table setting, they are made from the choicest timbers we have.
Available in 4 forms and 3 timber options (London Plane, British Ash and Sycamore), these are the seriously special show-piece boards we love to put time into.
Starting from the morning of Tuesday 9th December, the next 25 orders placed via our website will find themselves with an extra board – a Hampson Woods Miniature no less – for your tree, for a voul-au-vent, or for your doll’s house, it’s up to you!
Last week we spent a day of surreal making – pretty much the same processes as the boards we produce regularly, but everything so very tiny. A few sanded fingers later we had this fine array of miniatures – and felt like huge-handed giants.
and of course once you’ve got a miniature board in hand, everything’s just too cute and you carry on……
This Sunday 14th December we’ll be open as part of Hackney Makers Monthly. If you haven’t been down yet, it’s a great opportunity to meet some of Hackney’s finest creative-makers and a chance to buy directly from them. And of course to simply have a bit of a snoop round…..
It’s the last one of 2014, so I’m sure festive fun will be had!
On until the 17th November 2014, the Red Cross has opened a pop-up in the heart of Covent Garden – nestled among the donated stock from fashion and high street brands is one of our London Plane Serving Boards. Please see their site for more info.
