About Us



The workshop is situated in a delightful Leicestershire village and,as well as being used for running courses, is a professional workshop undertaking assignments for the antique trade or private commissions.

If you are able to extend your stay, then Long Clawson is an ideal centre from which to explore the beautiful Vale of Belvoir and Rutland Water.

After 16 years management in industry I trained in fine craftsmanship and design at Rycotewood College and latterly with a highly regarded antique restoration workshop. For the past 28 years the blend of commissioned work and teaching from my own workshop has proved a very happy one for myself and, I believe, students alike.

…you gave me not only increased confidence, but inspiration. Thank you Chris.

Thank you for passing on your skills to me, I gained a lot. I am getting more confident with each project and am certainly enjoying my retirement.

Thank you so much for the most enjoyable lessons, I am exceedingly pleased with my table. My Dad was very impressed but I am not so sure to what extent he was able to connect it with me.
