Gemma and Jason of Hord in their shop

The journey to our Brick and Mortar Shop & Working Studio

 

At the end of September 2020, we took the plunge and got the keys to our -new- working studio and shop in the heart of Marsden village. 

An exciting new step for Hord, we have spent the previous years working from our home studio, however it kept us separate from the lovely community of our vibrant village. 

From building and waxing furniture, Ikea hacks and lots of painting, we have been mostly DIYing the space and giving it the love it deserves.

The space is split approximately in half, one for us to work in so that you can see us crafting our wares and your orders in person and the other to provide a retail area for browsing and getting a feel for our goods and materials. We wanted it to have a feel for the shops of old, inspired by design of the 1920s, it was important that we conveyed this in our workspace too. Acquiring old pieces of furniture and crates, a brass and glass haberdashery unit and wooden benches and tables that tell a story. 

We also hope the space will adapt over time and allow us to host small workshops when we are allowed to socialise normally again. 

Find a little sneak peek below of the shop space, showcasing our custom leather hip flasks, vegvisir beanies, bespoke leather journal covers and more! We are really excited to be able to open again soon once government guidelines allow!
