Woodworkers should always keep in mind the origin of the medium in which they work. It is the organic nature of wood which most strongly influences the physical presence of the finished piece.

Woodwork design is directly concerned with function – fitness for purpose. In woodwork, ‘design’ is the meeting of the geometry of architecture with the hard fibrous structure of wood, and the outcome is a distillation of the texture, shape and proportion, which the medium evokes.

Woodwork is about care, accuracy and skill with tools. This is what we teach at the Errington School of Woodwork and Design.
