Ben Tyson

10 years old …

His dog by his side, the wet earth beneath his boots and a curiosity to spend hours in the bush searching for the perfect piece of dead Bracken to make into arrows for a bow he crafted from a Blackwood branch …

Fast-forward two decades and Blackwood and Bracken was formed by Ben Henderson-Tyson.

With 20 yrs experience as a carpenter and a career building and renovating residential homes around Melbourne and interstate, Ben now turns his passion for handmade into furniture, leatherworks and ceramics.

After many years honing skills and feeding his inspiration for creativity, Blackwood and Bracken offers hand-crafted items made from recycled and, where possible, sustainable materials that follow a philosophy of simplicity and attention to detail.
