Woodworker Max Bainbridge and quilter Abigail Booth run Forest + Found, a dual-purpose studio in east London, where they work side by side creating products that celebrate craftsmanship and natural materials.
Their combined output includes beautiful horse chestnut and birch pots, poplar spoons, block-printed cushions and indigo strip quilts, made from piecing scraps of fabric together without a pre-determined pattern. The pair research and design together; Booth forages for plants she can use for natural dyes in the woods where Bainbridge sources his timber. ‘We have similar practices in that we’re both very much about the materials and the making process,’ explains Booth. ‘The more we looked at what we wanted to do, it became obvious how much crossover there was’.
