Through minimalism and strong craftsmanship, woodworker/designer Allison Samuels of Two Tree Studios strives towards sustainability in her production practices and working ethos, maintaining a light footprint while contributing to a more equitable future within her industry.
By founder Allison Samuels, who currently works out of her studio in East Williamsburg, NY. Through an upbringing surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains, Samuels cultivated an early appreciation for the natural world. As such, her work emphasizes, and is dictated in part by, the unique properties she observes within raw material itself.
During the summer of 2020, Allison launched The Level Up Project, an initiative designed to be a community resource for those aiming to develop acute skills and professional networks within physical-skill-based industries, and for individuals at any stage of their career who are interested in relationship-building and creating pathways to learn with others. The Level Up Project is a network of individuals with decision-making power as solo creators and entrepreneurs, or as members of larger organizations. We are committed to removing systemic barriers to, and shifting power dynamics within, our fields of craft and design. These industries are often exclusive, cost prohibitive, and expect a certain baseline skill level, social network, or resources for entry. We believe that being well-networked and having financial wealth should not be preconditions to thrive and, therefore, hope to share knowledge and concrete skills with all who seek them.
