Creamore Mill is a design and woodturning workshop located in rural Shropshire, England. They create an innovative range of functional home and garden accessories which evoke traditional style, selling with independent retailers across the UK and overseas.
Established by John Buckland in 1981, operations began in a ten foot square former wash house at the family’s previous home with a handful of tools and a wood lathe, working with locally sourced timber. Through this initial period a selection of designs came to the fore and developed the focus of the business.
Having soon run out of space the family moved to Creamore Mill which was formerly both a corn and wood mill dating back many generations. Taking on the Mill in a state of disrepair was a great opportunity, and the renovations carried out revived the Mill's past association with woodworking and turning.
Steady improvement led to more mechanisation which is tempered by the high degree of hand work still practiced. Seeing progress from design through to despatch under one roof holds the artisan approach true.
