Cosy Homeware, from Us to You

At Wrought To You, we are passionate about crafting unique pieces which not only look fantastic but which enhance the feel of a home too. We want to help people create joyful, cosy environments and bring some 'hygge' into their lives. "Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than things." Meik Wiking   As the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, creating an  atmosphere filled with light and warmth becomes more important than ever.

Going with the Flow

"When we are involved in (creativity), we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life. You know that what you need to do is possible to do, even though difficult, and sense of time disappears. You forget yourself. You feel part of something larger.” Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, TED Talk, February 2004.

I often find myself reaching for a piece of wood and...

Crafting a New Path

If you had told me five years ago that I would ever be woodturning pieces that I was sufficiently proud of to show my friends and family, I would have laughed. “I am rubbish at making things,” would have been my response, or something to that effect. So, to have been told that I would one day be selling my handcrafted work, would have seemed impossible. I always told myself that the logical conclusion of my not being very good at drawing (I’m still not) and being pretty bad at art in school, was that I was not artistic or good...

Welcome to the Website!

Welcome to the Website!

After many months of hard work and years of wanting to create something that is ‘mine’, I am so very excited to finally be able to share my work with you! Here you will find handcrafted homeware and jewellery made sustainably in West Sussex. I chose the name ‘Wrought To You’ to play on the phrase ‘brought to you’ as I like that it feels as though I am speaking directly to my wonderful customers. My mission is to offer completely unique, one-off products for you and so it was important to me that the name reflected this personal touch....
