During the First World War, the Dryad Works provided a Leicester hospital with off-cuts of cane for basket-making by wounded soldiers. There was a growing demand for cane and other craft materials for use in occupational therapy and in schools. Peach set up another offshoot of his business, Dryad Handicrafts, to supply this demand. He was convinced of the importance of craftwork in education but only if standards were high. He wanted to encourage the teaching of handicrafts in schools and elsewhere and to try and raise standards of amateur work by selling good quality materials and tools selected by professional makers. Under Peach’s direction, Dryad Handicrafts developed a network of resources including a range of well-designed and informative leaflets written by practising makers and teachers.
