Gavin Coyle Studio is a contemporary craft workshop based in Walthamstow, East London. Working predominantly in timber our work explores the interaction between traditional skills and modern techniques. We strive to create products which have a rich narrative, expressed through unpretentious forms providing a quiet, enduring presence in the home.
From small individual items for sale, to bespoke commissions, our aim is to create timeless products which have a lasting beauty and are designed to be lived with, used, and enjoyed.
Much of our work is bespoke commissions for manufacturers, retailers, architects and private individuals. From early discussions, briefing and sketches, defining materials and appropriate craft, to design, make and installation, we have a wholly collaborative and holistic approach to each project.
Each commission is truly bespoke, and is based on a collaborative approach, clear communication and progressive thinking.

Our ethos is very much less is more, with products designed to be enduring in both their design and choice of materials. We aim to design products which are the antithesis of throwaway, using materials which are beautiful and long-lasting.
Careful design not only means less waste in production, but also that any waste can be reused or recycled. Our sawdust goes to local allotments, mushroom growers and the local paint recycling centre (frponline.org.uk).Timber offcuts are used to heat the workshop using our Defra approved woodturning stove.
