An Evening with Furniture Designer extraordinaire

John Makepeace

"John Makepeace has a special place in the
history of design and fine furniture."
Prof. Jeremy Myerson, Royal College of Art

John Makepeace's career has been described as an adventure in wood. Following an inspirational visit to Copenhagen’s great cabinet makers as a teenager, John found design and craftsmanship came naturally to him. Early professional recognition led to work as a design consultant to the all India Handicraft Board, co-founding the UK Crafts Council and acting as Trustee of the V&A. John has received Lifetime Achievement Awards from the American Furniture Society and the Furniture Makers Company.

He is an Honorary Fellow of the Arts University Bournemouth and Hereford College of Arts.

Join us on Thursday 21st March 2019 to hear more about John’s fascinating life and work.
