Some 25 years ago, I started attending green woodworking courses, making items of furniture for my home. I then started to explore more “orthodox” carpentry, attending courses at evening classes and during holidays from my work in the public sector.
I left paid employment in 2018 and trained for a year in Furniture Making and Design in the Lake District. I now have a small workshop in Hebden Bridge where I continue to develop my skills and experience. Currently, I make one-off items of furniture as well as smaller items for domestic use. As I develop, I am keen to explore new ideas and approaches to working in wood.
