I am a full-time designer, maker and teacher and am passionate about traditional handcrafts.

I live and work in North West Cumbria in a tiny farming hamlet nestled mid-way between the northernmost edge of the Lake District National Park and the Solway Coast.  Most of my making and teaching takes place in an original threshing barn, one of several historic outbuildings, which, along with our 300-year-old farmhouse, surround a cobbled courtyard.

I specialise in creating beautiful, functional, traditional hand-crafted items from green wood (that is wood that looks like a freshly felled tree and still contains all of its moisture) using traditional methods and razor-sharp hand tools like axes and knives.  My craft is for everyday use in the kitchen and around the home, it is designed to be used hard and for a long time, hopefully by generations of the same family.

Workshops

In a dedicated workshop space at our farmhouse in north Cumbria, we offer a range of opportunities for learning to use traditional hand tools to work green wood. We can also help you to begin your journey towards being able to make your own edge tools with our own forge and grinding facilities.

Depending on the nature of the learning most open workshops will cater for between 4 and 8 participants. We ask that for our open workshops learners should be aged 18 and over, or over 16 if accompanied by an adult paying for their own place on the workshop.

We are happy to offer bespoke closed workshops, either one-to-one or for small groups, for which we are also happy to consider groups of children with adults. We are DBS checked at an enhanced level for working with children.

We are completely flexible in being able to provide one-to-one or one-to-two tuition in many aspects of greenwood craft at a time that suits you best. These are bespoke workshops designed specifically for you to develop a particular area of the craft so that you may continue your own learning independently.
