Maker's bio

Scott has been upcycling furniture for many years, but it was only after family and friends asked how they could make the inventive pieces in his home that Scott first started sharing his skills. Over 7 years later Scott continues to host a number of Black Paw upcycling experiences in his workshop, helping people to create their own pieces of upcycled furniture and learn the skills needed to upcycle at home.

Rhona Hazell reviewed: Training course in upcycling with pallets. An introduction to making furniture with pallets for beginners in Somerset: one day

"Thank you to Scot and Sue for a fantastic day. My daughter and I learnt so much on the upcycling pallet workshop, we left feeling more confident in using various tools and the skills in which to create many projects. Can’t recommend this course highly enough, my daughter said it was the best workshop she’d ever done It inspired us both "

Al Cunningham reviewed: Training course in upcycling with pallets. An introduction to making furniture with pallets for beginners in Somerset: one day

"I had a great day yesterday with the BlackPaw Upcycling project on their introduction to Upcycling with pallets course. It is a relaxed course with opportunities to try different techniques from dismantling pallets to making our project. Best of all is that it is a small group course (4) so Scott had lots of time to talk us through different tools and techniques and for us all to practice them. Only downside is that I now need to buy more tools! Definitely will book on other courses."

Rich Dean reviewed: Key skills for converting vans into campervans 2 day course

"I really enjoyed my time learning key skills to building my own campervan. Scott is very knowledgeable and a welcoming host. I finished with some well needed knowledge and ideas on what to get for my first build. Hands on skills to confidently buy the right and install electrical, water and fuel equipment. I definitely recommend the 2 day course if you are planning to build any size home on wheels 👍 thank you Scott Kindest regards "
