The council run William Morris Gallery, in Walthamstow, is showing the range of the products from 30 January to 19 April.

Wood is the name of show, which according to the Crafts Council, encourages designers to take a 'responsible approach to design and offer a timely antidote to society's high levels of consumption and throw-away culture'.

One of the items on show is a frame bird feeder (pictured) by Nina Tolstrup, which responds to the rarity of birdlife in urban areas.

The idea for the bird feeder was to create a product, which encourages interaction but also serves to capture a fleeting moment by framing it.

The show will then leave the council run museum and tour the UK.
