About Us

Lise Bratton and Graeme Murray work in partnership to make artworks and furniture in wood using local Scottish hard and soft woods, often incorporating other materials amd processes in their designs such as glass and printing.

In 2009, we purchased The Old School at Eckford.  Our plan: to build a creative place near the workshops at Real Wood Studios, Ancrum (where Graeme is a Director) to enable us to develop our work.  The Old School provides the perfect space for the photography, film, drawing and study that informs this work.  Real Wood Studios is a collectively owned enterprise specialising in the creative use of locally sourced native hardwoods in the Scottish Borders.

The Old School has a large and productive (if a little wild) garden.  With beautiful views, flowers, an orchard and vegetable and herb gardens, we are building a productive and creative environment that visitors are welcome to share.
