Liz Reed

Using driftwood found on her meanderings along the beautiful northeast coast of England, Liz makes quirky and engaging ‘folk’. Each piece of work is completely unique and lovingly brings together fine skills accumulated and honed during a lifetime of making, with materials she is passionate about. As the daughter of a doll maker and a carpenter perhaps her path was inevitable. Her ideas evolved from a pile of driftwood, a photo of a peg doll, and as a positive alternative to returning to what some people might call a ‘proper job’. Hours and hours of beachcombing to find the right pieces of wood, and yet more hours of workshop time, has seen her folk evolve into the very individual characters they are!
