I am a qualified & accredited cabinet maker and furniture restorer. I have a passion for traditional crafts and teach various aspects of making & restoring. I also write for woodwork magazine 'Quercus' and for 'Woodland Heritage'.
I feel that our health & quality of life is enhanced by working practically, making and learning new skills.
At a time in society, when consumerism has taken hold, we throw too many things away and do not appreciate materials or nature. We must make better and restore more.
We need more relaxing workbench time and less screen time!
"I found it a very constructive, informative day in the workshop. Bill obviously knows his stuff and made it easy for everybody to understand. Everybody was friendly and speaking afterwards, all agreed it was a good day."
"What an amazing course! Learnt so much in a gorgeous environment with a great teacher. Fantastic fellow learners too. Can't wait to carry on with my chair and put to use some of the skills. Recommended book en route and saving has begun for the 2-day course. Left feeling very inspired (and a bit sad at my daily grind in IT!) Absolutely recommend this course. "
