Joanna Majewska, from the beautiful Polish capital of Warsaw, is a former graphic designer, who decided that she wanted a more practical and hands-on career.
Joanna has always had an interest in design and interior design, but came to the Chippendale school without any prior woodworking skills.
One of her signature pieces is a quirky, round drinks cabinet made from veneered rosewood. But, utilising her design skills, and inspired by the internal mechanism of a clock, it incorporates a clever array of oak gears to open, close and lock the cabinet.
Following graduation, Joanna will be returning to the school to take incubation space, and make the transition from furniture design student to professional woodworker.
