We recently welcomed to the school one of the UK’s leading writers in furniture design and making.
While newspaper and TV journalists do regularly come to the school, it’s not often that we see a specialist writer who is himself a woodworking expert.
Derek Jones, editor of Furniture and Cabinetmaking, a GMC Publications title, was here to see how we do things at the Chippendale school.
As well as writing both practical and design related features, Derek has written several books on the subject of furniture making.
The magazine he edits is highly-regarded in the sector, with Apps for both the Apple and Android platforms which now account for more than 50% of new customers.
“It was a real pleasure to meet Derek and to share information on a subject that we are all passionate about,” said Anselm Fraser, school principal.
