Teaching and Student Work
From September 2003 until September 2014 I taught furniture subjects up to degree level, firstly at Rycotewood Furniture Centre, Oxford, and latterly at Leeds College of Art (2005- 2014) as the Programme Leader of the BA (Hons)/ Foundation Degree in Furniture Making programme.
Both courses provided students with learning in research and design development, traditional craftsmanship allied to modern computer technology and programmes including AutoCAD and CNC production along with guidance on business practices. Each course provided graduates with the essential skills and knowledge, if they wished, to progress to a range of successful creative woodworking and related professions, from makers, to creative design practitioners, to management roles, to starting and running their own business, etc.
