Company History

Ray and Kathy Sylvester established Temima Crafts in 1995 after taking early retirement from teaching. Since then they have designed, made and sold a range of products, many combining wood and textiles. Ray and Kathy sell their work at craft shows in the UK and are always exploring new ways to expand and develop their designs and processes. Temina Crafts and the 'blooming' cleaver boxes' featured in this film are created by Ray, and are inspired by the intricate patterns and nature of wood, and how this can be manipulated to create hidden designs and features of a simple box.
