I heard about this company through a family member who is a teacher and who was expressing her love of their learning resources. In a world full of plastic it is so refreshing to see a company working and making beautiful things with wood.
“Coach House Woodworks is a husband and wife team based in the heart of the New Forest in the UK. We create one off unique home, nursery and wedding products from reclaimed and salvaged wood. Working with wood and natural materials has always been a shared passion of ours and we take great pride in taking something old and unloved and giving it a new lease of life. All the wood we use is sourced locally and our products are all lovingly handmade from our home workshop. What started off as making products for friends and family turned into selling locally and now we are shipping our products worldwide.
Our most recent venture into children’s learning resources comes from experience of teaching the primary curriculum and research into the Montessori approach to learning.”

The wooden tracing boards are made from solid beech wood and have been finished with a natural beeswax to make them safe for little hands. All their learning resources encourage open ended play and learning. They offer personalised name tracing boards and personalised number and letter bags.
