    Forest and Found was created in early 2014 by Max Bainbridge & Abigail Booth, after graduating from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2013. They built their workshop in East London in order to focus on their shared love of making and working with natural materials. One woodworker and one quilter, their individual practices, despite seeming very different are rooted in traditional craft and a relationship with the natural environment.
