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.

Tim prince reviewed: Key skills for converting vans into campervans 2 day course

"I really enjoyed the course. Scott is a very friend guy and really knows his stuff. I learnt alot from the course and it gave me the confidence to get started on my own project. I forgot what he said about insurance though. Great venue. Great 2 days. Would definitely recommend. "

"Great course covering all of the basics you need to know! Scott’s knowledge was superb and he could answer every question we had. He tailored the day to focus on the areas we were unsure on, and even had his daughter show us round her own self built campervan! A great day and cake and ice lollies in the heat were very welcome. Thanks a lot Scott! "

"I had the most amazing 2 days with Scott and his wife Sue! I have learnt so much, not just learning to deconstruct pallets and create and upcycle but they are both so giving in their wealth of wisdom, humour, creative skill and a 'can do' attitude. I have come away being inspired, full of creative energy and looking to book my next course with them. Worth every single penny and more. Quite frankly the best craft course I have ever done!"
