We are delighted to welcome our two new apprentices for 2013.

Our first apprentice David Williams has just completed a three year course at Moulton College in Northampton. David is also the first beneficiary of the newly launched Andrew Varah Bursary award. This award is supported by the Furnituremakers’ in memory of  Andrew Varah the noted designer-maker, who passed away last year.

Danny Humphreys checks how square the edge is.

The second new apprentice is Danny Humphries from London who has just completed two years at the Building Crafts College in Stratford. His training in the workshop is supported by The Carpenters’ Company.

They will both be following the Foundation Apprenticeship syllabus for the next 11 months.
