WOODWORKING . QUILTING . NATURAL DYEING
Forest + Found is a sustainable craft and design partnership set up by Max Bainbridge and Abigail Booth in late 2014. Both having a background in Fine Art, their practice has an emphasis on material and process. Working with traditional methods of craft they produce contemporary wooden objects and hand stitched textiles. Their focus is on the use of hand tools and the direct experience of hand crafting the object. Simple acts of carving, hand stitching and natural dyeing are points of access in how they refine and develop their craft practice. Every object made in their London workshop has a direct relationship to the landscape and its architectural environment through the use of natural materials and considered design. From sourcing wood and dye plants in the forest, to each mark of the hand on an object, their work endeavours to tell a story.
