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.

Bodgers Farm Pottery
Re-enactment and Historical Pottery by Kate Phillips
Over the past 20 years I have researched my love of ancient pottery, in particular the Anglo Saxon and Viking periods. Commissions have varied from bronze age beakers to Tudor candle sticks. I use various different clays to reflect different geographical areas and each pot has its own provenance. All my pottery supplied for re-enactment is designed to be used. I fire these to a much higher temperature than my potter ancestors were able to achieve resulting in far more hard-wearing pots. In addition I use modern food-safe glaze recipes and for hygienic purposes glaze the interior surfaces unless otherwise requested. Replica pottery for museum display is made as accurately as possible from historical reference research.
