About our speaker Sophie Sellu of Grainandknot:
Sophie graduated from the Manchester School of Art in 2009, and now lives and works in London. Loving spoon carving so much, Sophie would do it in any spare moment that she had. In the Spring of 2014 Sophie left her position in trend forecasting and took the opportunity to take Grain and Knot to the next level. After completing the Prince's Trust Enterprise Scheme, Sophie is now working as a full time woodworker, and is fully supported by the Prince's Trust.
Grain and Knot was born from a love of nature, exploration and the need for purpose in creation. It is beautifully tactile, fully functional wooden kitchenware, with each item made from reclaimed timber.
