Stag & Bow is a celebration of making, sharing skills, stories and knowledge, materials and history. As well as our beautiful shop we also run informal, informative and inspiring craft and textile workshops.
Stag & Bow was set up in 2010 by Pascale & Cyrus. A natural progression of both their lives work so far. Cyrus is a genius woodworker and designer with experience of varied design disciplines, always with a focus on the poetic side of materials, objects and how people relate to them. He had been teaching design in a secondary school in south London before leaving to immerse himself in this project. Pascale is happiest when making, having many sticky fingers in many textile pies. From weaving to tailoring a garment from the woven cloth; A majority of her formal training was undertaken in Melbourne, Australia, following which she set up a successful children’s clothing and accessories label before returning to live in the UK.
In their work they are evangelical about the materials chosen and its history, whilst respecting and revelling in the associated processes. Through this choice of materials, they celebrate its scars and the memories held within it, whether literal or emotional, them selves adding another layer before the object is passed on to become part of someone else’s history.
Cyrus and Pascale regularly take on private commissions for bespoke furniture, clothing, home wares and more. Please pop in and talk to us directly or drop us a line via email or telephone –
