story keeper: village of women

A new look for one of our favorite stories, this is an evolution of our previous storyboards...

This is the original prototype of this story keeper - it will be used as a template for the pieces that are available for order. The size & design will be similar, the story will be the same, the wood will differ according to what we decide to choose from what is available...

    repurposed & handcrafted...

    We have the deep joy of working with incredibly beautiful wood, sometimes from trees that are hundreds of years old... This means every piece that leaves our studio carries along its own history & is entirely unique.

    The wood species will vary according to what we can source from local small businesses that share our ethos.

    All our reclaimed wood products are made for you as soon as you place an order - which is why it may take us a day or two to get these out to you.

    We shape, sand & wax each piece here in our studio. Woodcuts are done freehand. Unless stated otherwise, painted pieces have our unique bird & brush process: 4-6 layers of paint, graphite & ink (including a secret hand written wish between layers).

    Our wood pieces come with a small card telling a bit about us & the piece, & are either wrapped in repurposed pages from old books or in an organic cotton bag.
