Dry Flowers

We're Oran & Bryony...

a husband & wife team working together from our home in wild Northumberland.

The Short.

We both love to make things  and we love to spend time outdoors.  

We've been making, renting and selling wood & canvas structures for over 15 years now. We run a company called Curious Tent Hire and The Canvas Awning Company is an extension of this.

We made our first Woodsman's Awning in 2011. We wanted a structure that was simple and functional for little gatherings around the fire and to take on our camping trips.

The Canvas Awning Company is all about sharing our love of high-quality, beautiful structures that facilitate time spent outdoors.

The Long.

Oran likes working with wood. Designing & making. Playing guitar. Lighting fires. And he loves a good party!

He grew up here in Northumberland and has a strong affinity with the space and wilderness of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Bryony likes taking photos. Making pottery. Cycling. Long walks and swimming in rivers. She grew up in Ireland and moved to Northumberland the day after her last exam at Trinity College, Dublin - when Oran picked her up and whisked her away in his white van!

We have two daughters - Freya and Anouk. Together we love to camp and adventure in wild places - close to home and further afield when we get the chance.  Our trips up to  the isle of Mull, are a favourite  every year.
