Raw Workshop produce high quality products and services and work with many corporate, education,  local government and private customers.They employ, train and support people from communities who face prejudice and barriers to work.Over 85% of their team will be striving to succeed in the face of issues such as physical or learning difficulties, mental health illness, recovery from addiction and criminal histories.

 

Gareth Neal is a  hands-on designer and maker,  fascinated by process, whether that be with traditional tools or the latest computer controlled router. This combined with a fascination of historical techniques and aesthetics roots his design within a specific context with rich narratives and contextual reference points. Good design emanates from a depth of knowledge of the medium, and an ability to reconsider it for a contemporary audience.
