I am Hannah Wiles, a Manchester-based fine artist and furniture restorer. Having completed an arts degree and worked in the industry for a few years, I decided my mission would be to use my design skills and love of last century furniture to create stunning contemporary pieces. I saw amazingly designed materials made of beautiful materials being discarded as old fashioned and I knew in my bones we could do better and that we deserved better.

I determined only to use environmentally sound products in my making and teaching process. It is my absolute belief that our homes should mirror the beauty of the natural world, without damaging it – this is how Tread Softly was born. Creating gorgeous sustainable furniture that ‘doesn’t cost the earth’.

In line with this, I run furniture upcycling workshops and would love you to join me to create something wonderful. I am a qualified teacher and tutor and have been running workshops for several years.
