About Me

Photo © Tchad Blake


I’m Bella Bathurst, and I’m a writer, photojournalist and furniture-maker.

My books include The Lighthouse Stevensons, and Sound, a Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4. My most recent book is Field Work: What Land Does To People and What People Do To Land, and the rest of the time I make furniture to commission. If you’d like to get in touch then just email me at moc.doowyrotsrednu@tcatnoc, and if you’re keen to know more about my writing then why not have a look at my other website, bellabathurst.com?

When I’m not writing I make furniture, and the furniture usually has a story.

Often, people want a piece of furniture to fit a particular need or space - they've just moved house and their old desk / kitchen table / bed doesn't fit, or they've had a bit of timber knocking about for years which they'd love to have turned into something personal. If you've got a project you want to discuss then email me, and we'll work something out.
