World famous furniture maker to visit Rowden

Thomas Hucker, world famous award winning furniture maker, is due to visit Rowden Workshops next Monday to give a presentation and to speak with our students. He is one of only a handful of designer makers to be included in “Furniture with Soul,”  a book to be published early 2011 by leading Japanese publishers Kodansha International. Tom  produces elegant and detailed pieces in his studio in Hoboken, New Jersey. When speaking of Tom’s work the noted English furniture designer John Makepeace said “Tom’s work is poetry, sheer poetry”.

I am delighted that such a distinguished furniture maker is taking the time to come and speak with our students, and I’m sure they’ll benefit hugely from the experience.
