Announcement    New Town in the Wood is a small business based in London. I sell printed cards, abstract and figurative drawings, watercolour paintings and prints.

Inspired by myths, monsters and folk tales, the stars and seasons, local nature and history, and a sense of fun.

My original artworks are made using archival materials, I use professional quality watercolour paints, and only those with high permanence ratings. Papers are high quality cotton papers that will age well when properly cared for, and inks are all archival quality.

Laser-cut cards are designed by hand, converted into vectors and cut by a local laser-cutting company, from FSC certified card. Printed greetings cards are printed in the UK on FSC certified card.

All products are designed and made in the UK, all packaging is recyclable and plastic-free where possible, and supplier packaging is re-used where it can be.

About

I'm Sophie and I run this shop.
New Town in the Wood is a translation of the name of the place where I live and work, it's also where I grew up, and where I get most of my inspiration.

I set up New Town in the Wood as an outlet for all the cards I was designing and making for friends and family. I've recently expanded into printed cards, and original artworks.

My background as a museum paper conservator means that I pay a lot of attention to the quality of the materials I use, and their longevity. I use only professional quality paints in my original paintings, and archival inks in my drawings.

The cards I sell here are produced with the help of a London-based laser-cutting company, or printed by a UK-based company. Both use FSC-certified card and paper. Giclee prints are printed in London on archival papers with archival quality inks.

I hope you find what you're looking for in the vast space full of wonderful things that is Etsy.
