Tony McMullen is one the last breed of makers who were apprenticed to the furniture trade, and trained in the art and craft of furniture making. He is steeped in the ethos of the Arts and Crafts movement and true to that tradition, he passes on his knowledge to the next generation at the University of Central England for a few hours each week, spending the rest of his time in his workshop. Tony is now experimenting with designs and techniques that will enable him to make furniture from materials not usually associated with fine' furniture.
