Ernest has studied with the leading woodcarvers in England and in France at Ecole Boulle. His passion is primarily focused on carving that is in the support of restoration of furniture while he is equally inspired by carving in support of artistic endeavours.
Greg Cupitt-Jones acts both as an advisor to the school and as a Principal Tutor. Greg has been running Cottage Upholstery, a very successful upholstery business in a small rural workshop in Nettlebed, Oxfordshire for over 24 years.
Paul Tear has over 40 years of furniture making and restoration experience. Beginning as an apprentice, Paul became enthused about the restoration process and soon worked his way up to head conservator for The Wallace Collection where his focus was on 18th Century French furniture.
Phil has always been inclined toward woodwork and hand skills. He graduated from Bucks New University over ten years ago and since that time he has started and successfully built a furniture restoration business. During that time he has made a concerted effort to study all the different ways that furniture is made.
In her role as tutor at Bucks New University, Candace has, in her 34 years teaching, inspired many of her students to win major design awards including Goldsmiths and Pewterers. Candace has experience in all of the basic areas of Jewellery Making. In addition to teaching the primary course at Bucks, Candace has taught many evening and short classes.
We are currently offering the following craft courses. More will be added shortly.
