New Forest Brushes - In action!
Deep in the Forest this is one of England's smallest "factories". This is Brian, who also produces amazing working models of aeroplanes and boats. I first met Brian when I was looking for someone to make plinths for my bell collection. Then I asked him if he liked the idea of making shaving brushes. He now makes all New Forest shaving brushes. Here's a few pics to give some idea of the old fashioned way the brushes are made and the tiny workshop in which they are made. This, plus Fido's little office, is New Forest Brushes in action.
