Black Thrum CapSally Pointer & Gareth Riseborough bring you carefully researched projects, resources and supplies inspired by the past to enrich the present.


We are makers, designers, researchers and educators, and are always happy to discuss commissions or requests for workshops.


Our costumed interpretation work covers prehistory to the twentieth century, and we can often be found demonstrating historic skills and traditional crafts at heritage sites around the country.


We have a wide range of research and creative interests, as a result there is some very diverse content on this site.

Please browse the categories in the top barĀ for our full content listings, and feel free to contact us if we can be of help or if you have a suggestion.
