This year's furniture exhibition was opened by Paul von der Heyde, the Master of the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers. Work on show represented all students in the centre, including the part-time Woodcarving and Upholstery courses, the Furniture Apprentices, the full-time City and Guilds Furniture Making course and the FdA/BA Hons Furniture Design and Make students. It is estimated 600 people visited the show over the week and feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
Alan Peters Award for Excellence 2014
Two of Rycotewood Furniture Centre's students entered and won this prestigious award. Sam Bolt entered 'Bedside cabinets' and Dan Harrison's 'Console table'. They will be exhibiting the winning pieces at the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design exhibition at the Thirlestaine Long Gallery in Cheltenham 16-25 Aug.
Hopefully the students will be equally successful in the New Forest Trust exhibition later this month.
