The Waters and Acland furniture workshop and furniture school is a place full of energy, passion and a love for the craft of furniture design and making. When we founded the workshop in 2006 we had two goals. To design and make hand crafted furniture to an exceptional standard and to keep our craft alive by passing on skills to the next generation of furniture designers and makers. And so far so good. The quality of work produced in our commercial workshop and by the talented students in our furniture school has won numerous awards and never ceases to amaze those that are lucky enough to own it, see it in our Lake District showroom or at exhibitions throughout the United Kingdom. Our love for the craft of furniture making drives our success and is at the heart of everything we do and this website is a celebration of what can be achieved through that heady combination of skill, passion and a determination to learn.
