Our Craftsmen

We offer our clients access to the expertise of an unrivalled network of independent working craftspeople, based all over Britain. Some of them have worked closely together on our projects for decades, others are recent ‘discoveries’. All of them work to the highest standards of craftsmanship: if they didn’t, we shouldn’t work with them. So we can unreservedly recommend their products.


We closely monitor all their work for historical accuracy, and where required provide them with detailed pictorial and documentary sources and measurements to work with. And because we work directly with our craftspeople, overheads are kept to a minimum, and costs to the client are kept down.


Barrels and coopered wares

No historic kitchen or store-room is complete without its coopered barrels, buckets and tubs. The only traditional coopers working in Britain today, our craft partners can produce oak-staved barrels, tubs, churns, piggins and 'barrel-chairs' hooped in iron or hazel and willow, according to period and purpose.

Whether you need fully-operational beer-barrels and butter churns or coopered set-dressings, we can supply them
