The Rycotewood Furniture Exhibition opens today (3 July) at The Old Fire Station in Oxford, providing visitors with an opportunity to see incredible displays of craftsmanship by current and recent students from City of Oxford College.
Some of the pieces on display include the Velo chair by Jan Waterston who recently won the Mixology15 Student Designer of the Year award.
Joseph Bray, Course Leader BA(Hons) and FdA Furniture: Design and Make commented: “This exhibition is an exciting collaboration between Rycotewood and the Old Fire Station. The exhibition is made up of award winning pieces demonstrating creative craftsmanship in wood and will be complimented by student demonstrations in the gallery window. The student work on display is the equal of most professional exhibitions, we are all extremely proud of their success!”
The exhibition will run until Saturday 8 August and you can find out more by visiting the Old Fire Station events page.
The Rycotewood Furniture Centre has been highly respected in the industry for over 75 years. Students are regular award winners in national competitions.
