New English Workshop is a partnership of professionals and enthusiasts passionate about preserving the craft of fine furniture making. As well as seeking to promote and encourage the use of traditional methods of working we’re focussed on providing training and education to the highest standard for likeminded souls.

Organised by Paul Mayon and Derek Jones our aim is to help make fine woodworking in the UK the envy of the world again. No more, no less (no pressure then…). So, if you want to be a part of what we are doing you’re welcome to join us on that journey.

  1. Wonderful news about Peter Follansbee. However due to family commitments I will not be able to attend the course. I understand that his lectures/presentations are legendary so could I suggest that you to consider organising an afternoon or evening event when he is over here. Many thanks.

  2. Just read Chris Schwarz’ item on the knockdown workbench. A web trawl failed to locate a UK source for the threaded insert. As you are running a course for this item, do you have a UK source? Many thanks – great blog, keep up the good work this side of the pond!!

    • Hello there! Yes we will be running a knockdown Nicholson bench course with Chris (among other things) next year. We will communicate further details when our new N.E.W. website goes live in the next couple of weeks.

      Best regards,
