A lot has been going on at the Rycotewood Furniture Centre lately, including students from the second year of the Furniture Design and Make degree course, taking part in the Centre's third annual exhibition at Pitt Rivers Museum. Their work, following the theme of 'containing', was displayed in the Didcot case until the middle of March.

The Centre are also very pleased to announce that former student Stuart Evans has now been awarded the City and Guilds Medal of Excellence for his side table, which was completed in June, 2014.

In terms of student commissions, the furniture department were asked to design and make a pair of tables as a gift for two retiring governors. The commission was completed with great success by Avian Evans-White, who is taking the Year 1 FdA Furniture Design and Make.

In other exhibition news, the Centre's appearance at the OFS gallery in the city of Oxford came to an end at the beginning of 2015. Gallery manager Sarah Mossop reported that she was very pleased with the quality of the work produced by the students and practically all work was sold. The shop will continue to stock Rycotewood-made items and they are already looking forward to the larger scale month-long exhibition in July of this year.
