About the designer

Knepp Rewilding

Fine Cell Work and Knepp are threaded together through family legacy and vision. The revolutionary Knepp rewilding project, a 3,500-acre estate in Sussex, was co-founded by Isabella Tree, the daughter of Fine Cell Work’s founder, Lady Anne Tree.

Inspired by Knepp’s extraordinary rebounding wildlife and stitched by hand in UK prisons, the collaboration features original illustrations by Knepp's designer, Lia Brazier. Represented in the collection are species which play a vital part in the rewilding project at Knepp: beavers, white storks, turtle doves and Exmoor ponies.

The collection is available exclusively from Knepp's Wilding Kitchen & Shop, and the Fine Cell Work website.


Support our work

By purchasing from Fine Cell Work, you are making social change. However, 75% of our rehabilitation programmes are funded through donations and grants. We know that transformation is possible - for our stitchers, for our communities, and for our society as a whole. Your support - through donations or by purchasing products - will help to break the devastating cycle of reoffending and repeated imprisonment.

£10 donation
Provides a prisoner with the materials for one tapestry cushion (100 hours of creative activity). 

£20 donation
Will enable us to continue providing paid, creative and productive work to even more prisoners around the UK, helping them to build a brighter future.

£50 donation
Sponsors a prisoner to train as a volunteer 'class coordinator', teaching and mentoring other prisoners.

£250 donation
Covers the volunteer costs of a stitching class in prison.

£500 donation
Pays for the training, materials and support for one prisoner for an entire year, helping them to rebuild a meaningful, independent,crime-free life.

By giving prisoners hope that transformation is truly possible, they can envision a meaningful life after release. But nobody tells the story of how Fine Cell Work has helped them better than the prisoners themselves:

“Stitching allows me to use a totally different part of my brain and personality. I can move away from the more difficult reflections and anxieties and feel creative and purposeful. This means I no longer feel that my life has come to a halt and that I am of no use to anyone else.”
