#ThrowbackThursday  to this painting of Ernest Kent, who was the owner of Kent Brushes from 1862-1922! Ernest was one of the last remaining Kent family members to run Kent Brushes, before Mr Eric L.H Cosby entered the company in 1932 and started a new, dynamic chapter in Kent’s long history. Today, Mr Alan H.L Cosby, grandson of Eric Cosby is the Managing Director and Chairman, with his wife, son and one of his three daughters all working for the business. . . . . . #kentbrushes #kentbrush #hairbrushes #brushmakers #brushmaking #brushexpert #brushexperts #bestbritishbrushes #heritagebrand #historicbrand #heritage #bestbrushes #bestbritishbrushes #kentfactory #familybusiness #worldsbestbrushes #familyrun

Quill & brush - I’m all ready for the next round of life drawing @spud_lane studios, where I’mplanning #experiments with my new quills and brushes. I’ve used only #naturalmaterials (no adhesives, resins or other chemicals) that were either found on our property, or made be me from #localmaterials to whit the handles are bound with waxed hemp cord and the brush-ends are sealed with beeswax. The bamboo handles have been sanded and oiled with my very own “Oil of Bushes”, made from 5 trees that grow at Robertson Cemetery. They are the most local brushes I can possibly get :) :) I will be making some with fur/long fibres too, so anybody out there with fox, rabbit, deer or possum tails to get rid of, please get in touch with me! #southernhighlandsartist #andreaboltresz #brushmaking #sustainableart #artisanmade #custombrushes #southernhighlandsnsw #buylocalart #environmentalart #sustainableart #spudlanestudios
Sorting feathers to make brushes - I’m kind of on an enforced rest for a bit and having to sit on my bottom. But my hands don’t stand still and I’ve been wanting to make brushes for a primitive art project I have burbling away in the background. Handles have been harvested from the galloping bamboo scourge that a former occupant left us. Sometimes it’s actually useful :) Feathers include goose, chicken, sparrowhawk, galah (an especially nice quill) and quail. Really interested to see what kind of effects they will give. #southernhighlandsartist #andreaboltresz #brushmaking #brushmaker #artbrush #recycler #usewhatyouhave #primitiveart #artisanbrushes
As a lover of beautiful pared back abstract forms this work by Sophie Sellu really jumped out at me. . Text is from a post by @craftscouncil in the UK and you can drool over the work at @grainandknot. . #woodwork #grainandknot #brushmaking #makermovement #sophiesellu #reclaimedtimber #wow

Sustainable British homeware brand @grainandknot have won @appearherehq 's Space for Ideas competition, and with the help of interior designer @fredrigby opened up (pop-up, experience-led) shop on Ledbury Road! Beating 3,000 designers and makers, Sophie Sellu's reclaimed timber designs wowed a panel of industry icons including Diane Von Furstenberg (@dvf ), Natalie Massenet (@netaporter ), Nick Jones (@sohohouse ) and Dylan Jones (@gq ). Very well deserved - we can't wait to visit! #sustainabledesign #grainandknot #appearhere #spacesforideas #sophiesellu #woodwork #reclaimedtimber #timber #maker #popup #londonpopup #nottinghill #openstudio #brushmaking #woodenbrush #deisgnermaker #makermovement #woodworker #interiordesign #shopkeeper #interiorstylist #stylist #studio #studioshot #meetthemaker
Stopped by @grainandknot pop up store on Ledbury Rd to check out her awesome stuff. Picked up a chopping board that had been shot in its former life - tricky stuff that American walnut! Well worth a visit, she’s there for the next couple of weeks and running some wicked sounding courses too. @akkotakka @lindasaman @carincarincarinca round the corner from you guys if interested! • • • • • • #grainandknot #carvingwood #simplethingsmadebeautiful #kitchenutensils #brushmaking #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #cheeseboard #choppingboard #handmade
As of next week, I will be opening my very first pop up shop with the help from @appearherehq. I’ve been working like a maniac for the last few weeks, and am so proud of all the work that I’ve made. It’s the biggest body of work I will have ever displayed at one time, and the shop also coincides with 5 years of @grainandknot. I will be updating my webshop next week too - so that the loyal international shoppers don’t miss out. It would mean the world to me if you popped by and checked out the space. There are workshops happening, tickets via my webpage. Come and see how things are made and get a feel for the materials used. I’m really hoping to see lots of Londoners over the next couple of weeks, who is going to come and visit? If you are lucky you might get a cuddle from Stanley too 🌿
#ThrowbackThursday to this painting of the previous Kent Brushes Owner George Barton Kent (1826-1890). Today, Kent Brushes is in the dynamic direction of the Cosby family and continues to retain the craftsmanship and unprecedented quality that has been Kent’s reputation for over 2 centuries. #kentbrushes #kentbrush #Throwback #heritage #heritagebrand #historicbrand #history #bestbritishbrushes #brushmakers #brushmaking #brushexperts #britishbrand #britishheritage #britishheritagebrands #craftsmanship #familybusiness #worldsbestbrushes
