  Selected Makers

Guy Mallinson

I design and make contemporary commissions using a combination of traditional green woodworking and cabinetmaking techniques.  I work in a woodland camp where I teach green woodworking and art and craft courses to our guests.  In between courses I take on varied commissions exploring a contemporary aproach to using green (unseasoned) wood using traditional hand skills such as cleaving to maximise the strength of the timber and steam bending.

I try to use the appropriate technique and species to work with the nature of the material and personally source all materials locally.

I trained at the John Makepeace school for Craftsmen in wood - Parnham House and the Royal College of Art before running a contemporary furniture workshop in London for 15 years with 15 cabinetmakers undertaking commissions for Walt Disney, HRH The Earl of Wessex and the Laban centre Bendywood handrail installation.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 37 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
