Alex Walshaw

wood into art

Deep in rural Lincolnshire, tucked away in the back garden of his remote family home by a container doubling as a workshop, you will find Alex Walshaw the wood worker. Alex is an incredibly skilled and talented craftsman who specialises in the creation of high quality, furniture, kitchenware, and sculpture using wood from sustainable sources. Sources of wood such as storm fallen provide the base materials for Alex to create his masterpieces, which he sells to a wide range of international clients.

I was lucky enough to get to spend a day with Alex in Spring 2021, learning about his craft, his background, and his life, all while photographing him at work in his wildness workshop.
