The Furniture Makers Company Trip


In March 2016 myself and one other were hand picked from our year to join a group of young furniture makers at universities across England. The Furniture Makers Company ran the trip organising us to visit various furniture manufacturers surrounding Manchester and Leeds.

We were given tours of the workshops and studios and allowed the opportunity to ask questions and really understand a variety of companies manufacturing processes and methodologies.

The itinerary was as follows;

AM - Monday 14th March Arrival

PM - Monday 14th March Furniture Village
