About

Hugh will talk informally about the tools, techniques and philosophies of Japanese wood craftsmanship, and how these have influenced Hugh’s new collection of pieces that will be on exhibition from 26th August to 25th September.

‘I’m also going to be speaking about how Japanese society influences and enriches Japans craft culture which, I think, is integral to what makes it so special. During my architectural education, I became interested in Japanese design, and this is a subject that I have been fascinated with ever since. For eight weeks at the end of 2015 I travelled in Japan, as a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellow, in order to research the tools, techniques and philosophy of Japan’s unique woodworking culture.’ - Hugh Miller

Hugh will be available to answer questions at the end of his talk over refreshments.
