Maker's bio

I've been teaching for over 20 years and building things out of wood for a lot longer! I started running stool-making and woodworking classes about 5 years on a rather ad hoc basis. I was asked to run small ‘masterclasses’ in a local school and then ran classes in other people’s workshops. We moved to dedicated workshops of our own in 2023 to run courses full time. Lunch and snacks on the course are made by Bryony who trained at Le Cordon Bleu as a patisserie chef!

Richard reviewed: Building and weaving a side chair at The Quiet Workshop

"StJohn & Bryony, thank you for providing such a fantastic experience in your workshop last weekend. The tutoring was excellent as was the hospitality! You make a great team. Clear instruction and demonstration. I would not hesitate to recommend your courses and wish you all the best for the future. "

The Quiet Workshop responded:

"Richard, thanks so much for your review. It was lovely having you in the workshop. I’m definitely going to steal your technique for tying back the weft as you weave; it’s now on the flip chart. I hope you get the holdfasts sorted out; let me know if you need any other measurements. StJohn & Bryony"

Jane Earnshaw reviewed: Building and weaving a simple stool at The Quiet Workshop

"I'm writing this review sitting on the stool I made at The Quiet Workshop and I've got a big grin on my face. The teaching was perfectly pitched, the atmosphere really supportive and we got fed too! "

The Quiet Workshop responded:

"Jane, thank you so much for such a thoughtful review. It was a pleasure having you in the workshop, hearing about your extraordinary workshop build and benefitting from your skills and experience. You did a lovely job with the prep, joinery and finish on the stool and your weave was second-to-none. StJohn & Bryony"
