About the Mentor:
Growing up in the North York Moors surrounded by forest Angus began working with wood from an early age. By the age of 12 he had set up a workshop in his mums garage, doing small scale commissions for friends and family. At the age of 16 he secured a formal apprenticeship with a highly respected company (Robert ‘mouseman’ Thompson) producing fully hand crafted furniture where every piece is distinguishable by a carved mouse hidden on the piece, unique to each individual craftsman.At the age of 18 he decided he needed to explore the industry further traveling to New Zealand he found himself working for an Italian boat builder and restorer. He stayed here for 2 months before hitchhiking the rest of the country exchanging work for food and accommodation at different workshops. He also spent some time in Christchurch after the earthquake where he carved parts of the royal theatre.

Angus graduated with an A1 in furniture design, making & restoration and a Higher National in Furniture Finishing Techniques from the Chippendale international school of furniture, Scotland, completing a 30 week intensive furniture course. He was a teacher at the school for 2 years teaching students from around the world, before coming out to India in 2017.
