Craft shop, open daily 10am-5.30pm

A special guest maker showcase here at Devon Guild - and the chance to buy carved wood homeware and planters from Cockington Studio's craftmaker team 'Takahashi McGil.'

This husband and wife team make homeware by hand - their business name incorporates both family names and they use English methods and local materials as well as the skills, tools and influence of Japan. Items are handmade from the most beautiful hardwood slabs that - slowly air dried over a number of years. 

These makers incorporate the natural beauty of wood often with its knots, voids and natural cracks that occur during the drying of the wood.  The finishes are kept as natural looking as possible, most of the furniture is finished with hard wax oil or tung oil (both made from natural ingredients ). The chopping boards are treated with a home made finish of mineral oil and pure beeswax from Dartmoor.

All work is for sale.
