Field Trip: Woodcraftsman Tom Trimmins Wood WorkshopJust Got Made • 24 Aug 2018
The workshop of Woodcraftsman Tom Trimmins: Thursday 27 September, 6:30 pm, Islington London. £10
Field Trip is a series of public tours taking you behind the scenes of London’s hidden design workshops, small factories, and micro-manufacturing spaces. Discover the hidden spaces of the Maker Movement!
On the 27th September, we join professional furniture maker and woodwork teacher Tom Trimmins in his Islington workshop on a farm! Discover how fine furniture is made by hand and join our tour with Tom for a close up look at the tools, equipment, and processes he uses to create his unique work.
Our Field Trip guide is Tom himself, who tells us in his own words:
“Often people come to me with projects they need help to make real, or even just a vague but pressing urge to create with wood -its great to be able to encourage them! When I’m not teaching I’m making bespoke commissions or working on my product range.
On the Field Trip I will show some of my machines including the massive belt sander I built as well as some of my wooden planes and Japanese tools for a bit of contrast. Ill have some of my finished pieces of furniture to look at too after showing at the London Design Festival”
