The Bolthole was established in the Summer of 2019 when we (interior designer, Debra Harris and textile designer Sarah Fennell) discovered a common design ethos and decided to share a studio at Maws Craft Centre in the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. We began to explore our shared interest in sourcing vintage furniture, fabric and furnishings and so our studio became a hub for creatives looking to explore and uncover new ways of making a home with old things.
We are passionate about introducing people to traditional and heritage crafts and encouraging the re-use of beautiful, well-made vintage pieces, whilst celebrating their authenticity and individual style.
‘A Bolthole’ is traditionally a place of refuge and sanctuary, away from the craziness outside. For us, our studio is a creative oasis and haven from the humdrum, so it seemed the perfect name.
There, now you know.
