Our Craftspeople

Tom’s working life began as a woodman, felling timber for an estate sawmill in North Yorkshire.  He trained as a forester, worked as a horse-logging contractor, and learned his craft skills over a couple of decades in woodland work.

“Whether it’s a wall or a wooden spoon, I’m just happy to be making something lasting and useful.  If it’s beautiful too, then all the better.”

Shirley is a sculptor and teacher, whose specialism is making art with people with additional needs.  She’s a calm, patient educator with real skill honed over thirty years’ effort and application.

“I love making art outdoors; seeing people learn about themselves and others in a group, round the fire, making more from less.”
