I'm delighted to announce the opening of The Marchmont Workshop.

In July 2020, Richard Platt and I officially opened the first new full time rush-seated chair making workshop in the UK for 54 years. Situated in the grounds of Marchmont House in the beautiful Scottish Borders, we offer 9 different styles of chair, from designs dating back to the late 19th century, carrying on a tradition started by Philip Clissett and Ernest Gimson.
