Jeremy Broun is an innovative designer maker in wood who established a small workshop in Bath in 1973 and was amongst a handful of pioneers of the Seventies British Craft Revival. His work explores form, structure, technique and function using mostly solid wood (eg elm, ash, oak, maple). As a designer he is self-taught drawing inspiration from the material itself and in particular Scandinavian woodworking techniques.
His work covers a broad range from private and public furniture, timber and glass sunrooms, lighting and acoustic guitars. He is a seasoned author and pioner of the router and produces craft and design films under the label of "Thinking Hand Video".
He is a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, a Member of the Crafts Council Index of Selected Makers and was voted "Professional Woodworker of the Year 2005" by The woodworker magazine. In 2008 he was appointed as an inspector with the British Accreditation Council for independent further and higher education.
