It is such a joy to see our Designer Maker course students create such beautiful work. The standard of both design and build is so often exceptional and wouldn’t be out of place at any exhibition of hand crafted furniture anywhere in the world. This is both true but also pretty incredible as the majority of our students join us with little or no experience of either furniture making or design. They achieve this through a combination of high quality teaching, a working environment of passion and high standards and most importantly through dedication and hard work. Our students fall in love with what they do. The days of intense focus fly by and what you see in these testimonial pages is the result. Really first class work and designs that have been taken seriously and realised through an understanding of the ‘design process’ and hours of development. I do hope the images do the work justice and if they can get across just a small part of the joy experienced by the students experienced whilst making them we will be very happy.
