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.

Carolyn Fenn reviewed: Training course in upcycling with pallets for beginners in Somerset: two days

"What a great 2 days of learning how to upcycle pallets. Through Scott and Sue’s incredible patience I learnt to use many power tools efficiently in order to build a multi-purpose box, AND I learnt different painting/oiling/waxing/burning techniques whilst making a jewellery hanging shelf. It is a brilliant course, not only informative but confidence building. I can’t wait to get started at home now. Highly recommended. "
