Edwin and his twin brother Holkham the coastal woodsmen enter the forest

BlogWoodsman2We have been designing and making new animals and we will be sharing them with you over the coming weeks alongside the many commissions we made though October to December (which we couldn’t show you as many of them were gifts).

So here is Edwin the woodsman. Calm, gentle, a quiet soul who understands nature. He has a beautiful fold out map tucked in to his bag which shows you where he lives in the forest just in case he gets lost. Which he never does of course.

Edwin has a  twin brother Holkham who is a coastal woodsman who hails from the forests and beaches of North Norfolk in the UK. These two animals are superior creatures with badges and illustrated accessories we have designed and made.

Edwin has been such a calming influence we are sad to see him leave TheBigForest hut but he is soon to be featured in one of the coolest most hipster lifestyle magazines in the UK and when we know a publication date we will tell you more.

As with all animals from TheBigForest he is strictly limited edition, a decorative sculpture for adults, and should, like the folks who made him, be fed on quality carrot cake.

  2. Wonderful! really fancy his green toque! Congratulations on your upcoming article in a cool hipster magazine, that’s so wonderful. I think I should like to be fed carrot cake too, yum!

    • We always thought hipster was good but now some friends told us hipster is bad! Oh we give up. We are eating very little cake at the moment – post Christmas and New Year excess – so we wont even think about a big slice of carrott cake or we might give in….very very quickly!

  3. … and his amazing little hat! 🙂

    I absolutely adore your animals, every one of them has their own character and Edwin looks awesome!
