Our great challenge and joy is working with people who are hungry to squeeze every available piece of information from our tutors, from fellow students and from the experience as a whole. A great furniture design student is one who is totally open to absorbing all the inspiration they can from their surroundings.
We employ two full-time staff – Daren Millman and Jon Greenwood – who are both highly skilled furniture makers and patient teachers. We are also proud to have Ed Wild with us; a national award-winning furniture maker, who balances his time teaching our students to design beautiful furniture with running his own furniture making business.
Sooooo….. we are starting to get the hang of it. Between us we have over ONE HUNDRED YEARS EXPERIENCE in this furniture design business.
“Quality is what we do, YOU will do it too, from day one. We will teach you all stages from choosing hand tools, to picking out wood, to developing your drawings, and building a portfolio of work. There are lots of design schools, courses, and magazines that are great for showing you an amateur way of getting a good result. An amateur has no excuse for poor work other than lack of understanding, the amateur has all day to get it right, the professional has not. They must do it right, first time, every day.”
