Maker's bio

I've always loved making, and have been fortunate to work in creative roles for over 25 years. Two employment stints, at the legendary Eden Project and magical Centre for Alternative Technology stoked my interest in art from recycled materials. In 2019 I setup Quicksticks Workshop. My goal, to impart the joy of making, through handmade products, educational kits and practical sessions. I also now help teach Design Technology. The busy school day a perfect contrast to my quite studio.

Kathryn reviewed: Beginner woodwork - 1 to 1

"Great from start to finish. As a total beginner, Phillip took time to understand what I wanted to achieve and the sessions were well planned so that I used a range of tools and techniques. Phillip kept it fun, informative and well paced. Very happy with my project and the experience."

Quicksticks Workshop responded:

" Hi. As this was a custom project to frame your earlier stained glass project, we were both taking a leap of faith in the design and practicality for a self described 'beginner'. But well done, it looks great."

Sarah reviewed: Beginner woodwork - 1 to 1

"Such a great course! Having never done woodwork before, Philip was very patient and made it seem easy. I made the bird box and was so happy with the final product. Would definitely do another course! Thank you!"

Quicksticks Workshop responded:

" Hey Sarah, I'm thrilled you enjoyed making the double decker birdbox. Do let me know if you'd like any of the 'making in process' photos. Cheers"

"Philip kindly prepared materials and technical drawing for our project and guided us step by step to complete kitchen roll holders. It was informative and fun and Philp was extremely nice and patient. Highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested in craft. Thank you Philip!! We may book another one in the future."

Quicksticks Workshop responded:

" My first couple on a craft session. You two were great fun. The competitiveness!! Lol. Glad you like the design I came up with and had fun. See you next time."

Ben reviewed: Beginner woodwork - 1 to 1

"Had a great session with Phillip, he was patient and helpful and got the the balance right between instructing, demonstrating and just letting me get on with it! (Once I was confident on the equipment). The tools are really easy to use and good quality and I was really happy with the book ends I made. Thanks again!"

Quicksticks Workshop responded:

" Thanks Ben. I'm glad you had fun making personalised bookends. I just hope your cat doesn't take exception to the design and fling them off the shelf. ?"
