Undoubtedly a singularly gifted and knowledgeable individual, it is reassuring to know that someone like Theo Cook is instructing and inspiring the next generation of furniture makers in their craft, as Martin Pim-Keirle discovers here.
If you’re thinking about taking a course in furniture design and furniture making, it’s a good idea to take into account the location of the school. It’s such an important factor, since you’ll be living there for a considerable amount of time (we’ve already written about how great it is to be so close to Brighton), but also because it dictates what kind of extra-curricular things you can do.
It’s not just about the course, it’s also about the lifestyle surrounding that course – where you’ll be living, and how you’ll spend your time outside of the workshop. Chances are you’re taking a course that lasts at least a few months, and you don’t want to put your life on hold for that time.
