EGG & SPOON CRAFTS
Rachel Bainton's background is in engineering, but she's always had a strong interest in crafts and design. She set up Egg and Spoon Crafts, designing and making art and utensils in 2016.
All her spoons, scoops and spreaders are made from salvaged wood, that otherwise would have been chipped or burned. No two are ever the same.
She splits the wood, then carves it by hand using an axe, a saw, a couple of knives and a pencil to reveal the beautiful hidden grain.
Rachel says it's her mission to spread the use of wooden spoons for eating.
"Wooden spoons make a wonderful gift, especially if you pair them with something consumable... a scoop could be parcelled with some special coffee, a jar spoon with some chutney."
She also loves decorating egg shells...using beeswax and dyes to transform them into colourful jewel-like decorations.
