Furniture & Wooden Goods
Alison & Hugh's Handmade Things
Alison and Hugh Milton are Handmakers of Things: we take raw materials, quality components and a fair chunk of time, effort and experience and turn them into museum-class replicas of historical objects.
Whether you want furniture, chests, boxes, textile tools, belt pouches, belts, penners, musical instrument cases, historic knitted caps, beeswax candles, polish, baskets or a wooden spoon, we are your people.
Hugh works in wood and basket willow, Alison works in wool, leather, beeswax, fabric and basket willow. Basically if it doesn't easily bend it's Hugh's work, if it's flexible Alison made it.
We provide high quality demonstrating of historic skills
including (but not limited to):
