Our vision at Artichoke is that English design and craftsmanship is still flourishing in 100 years, and that the industry is still able to create interiors admired by future generations.  If you are a maker and you would like advice on how you can set up your own school, please get in contact by emailing  We’d love to assist.

As ever, many thanks to Axminster Tools for the provision of excellent quality saws, chisels, guages, mallets, squares and marking knives for students to use while with us.
