Featured Maker – June 2019

I'm a Craft In Focus Featured Maker!

I’m thrilled to bits! Craft In Focus, the best event organiser of high-quality, contemporary craft fairs in the UK have published an article about me and my Rustic Ash Chairs! I was selected to be their ‘Featured Maker’ for June 2019 – what an honour.

The article includes details of how I changed career following my retirement from the Fire Service, where the inspiration for my work comes from and other little snippets about me that you may not already know.

There’s a lovely photo of me with my Jack Russell terrier, Titch, who often comes to the workshop with me. He’s almost 14 years old now so he just settles down on his blanket and watches me work.

It’s well worth a read on their website here or you can download the PDF version of the article at the bottom of this blog post.
