About

This Way Out West

We design, manufacture and install the most robust and beautiful canvas shelter systems available to you in the UK today.

The Way Out West is a UK company that designs and builds tented spaces and other functional goods with high quality and longevity as a priority.

The spaces are designed for both professionals and discerning individuals alike, and they are beautifully engineered. We strive for excellence and this means we really like to keep an eye on the detail.

All aspects of our projects’ requirements are carefully considered and researched in the design stages and we value our reputation for providing all of our clients with really excellent customer service.

Find out more about our founders; Anna and Kel below.

Anna Butler - Co-founder and makes our ideas happen.

Anna spent her early twenties working, sailing and traveling around the world. She started learning her current trade in rope and cloth as Ship’s Cook on a Square-Rigger. Following the incredible mending and making of gear for the boats she lived on, she keenly watched from the heat of the galley. This passion turned into Deck Crew work on a Gaff-Rigged Ketch and a period as Bosun. She is driven by the intensity of living in close communities and crews; and is a lover of ideas. She has been devoted to her Pfaff sewing machine for 9 years.

“We both live and work in a practical, hands on way; these experiences constantly feed into our work and we both feel very much at home bashing pegs into the ground and building spaces that work outdoors. We met nine years ago at the local play group and over the years have taught ourselves a trade alongside bringing up children. After a time of working in this way we decided to bring our collective skills and ideas together – The Way Out West was born!”

Kel Odgers-Brown, Co-founder and creative powerhouse

Kel came to sewing the long way round; via art, travel and living under canvas. She is self taught and has been sewing for 9 years. From beautifully crafted tiny detailed dolls through to big robust canvas tents, Kel loves the detail and has an eye for the aesthetic. With years of practical experience she understands the value of trusty, functional kit. And good waterproofs!

“We love the variety of the work we take on and the challenges and problem solving that it brings. We are incredibly fortunate to have the support and guidance of our good friends and mentors Dave Buchanan and Alex Heslop, sail-maker and tensile structure architects extraordinaire. We love working and learning alongside them; it is a privilege to have the opportunity to be part of a team like this!”
