Tucked away in the heart of Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, With Bear Hands was born out of a love for design and a need to create. Established in 2015 WBH has been steadily growing, building a large and loyal customer base. Our Passion for design drives every project. We want to make things that make you smile, objects and rooms that bring joy. Weather it’s a secret reading nook under your stairs or a coffee table or cabin in the garden. Using the best reclaimed and new materials we create bespoke and exciting creations.
Hi, I am Oli Lee, the guy behind With Bear Hands. I have always loved making things with my hands and WBH developed from this love. I started out as an illustrator and set designer/builder at the world famous Aardman Animations here in Bristol. After a great few years working on television shows and commercials, I decided I wanted to spend more time with my young family and not commuting to and from work. So With Bear Hands was born. Making things that bring a smile to your face, tactile objects and textures organic materials, this is what I love doing.
So if you have an idea or no idea at all, let me know and we can create something special.
