about robinson house studio

robinson house studio was started by Marc Fish, after launching a career in furniture making in 1996 and seeing a need for high quality tuition. During his career, Marc has won four guild marks and continues to design exquisite pieces that have attracted an international clientele. His work has been exhibited around the world and works are displayed in his permanent gallery in New York. Theo Cook is now a partner in the school, with over 20 years of experience in fine furniture making and two Guild Marks under his belt.

Our mission here at robinson house studio is to teach you to really hone your craft and your skills, with a focus on design, so you can make original, creative, and high quality pieces. Students are encouraged to mix media, push boundaries, and try new things – see some examples of work here. Having our founder and principal at the cutting edge of high end means we are always aware of current trends, commercial challenges, modern designs, and new advances in the industry.

We want to help to get you to a point where you can start your own business, or help you put together a portfolio if you’re looking for employment within the industry, as well as provide passionate hobbyists with the next step in their craft with professional knowledge and practical experience.
