Alex Thomas
Tutor

Alex is a Cambridge trained architect and timber frame carpenter, who co-directs Timber Workshop in Devon. Five years of experience in a range of design led London practices included time at Van Heyningen and Haward, Eric Parry and Buschow Henley Architects. This was followed by an extended period at the young practice Feilden Fowles. A passion for making crafted architecture has been a key driver though a varied career route. The last five years have been spent exploring timber framed carpentry, enhancing an understanding of construction, and an interest in how buildings are pieced together. Alongside this, Alex has been involved in a range of voluntary projects, including a ‘Summerbuild’ programme at Hooke Park, and a timber framed construction in Uganda for the Richard Feilden Foundation.

Alice Blogg
Visiting Tutor

Alice grew up in Dorset where she was given the freedom to pursue creative interests from an early age. Although university and her career took her to Manchester and London she returned to Dorset to establish her business. Her workshop is nestled in a beautiful wooded area looking out to Eggardon Hill across the rolling West Dorset countryside. It is this environment that provides not just the inspiration for her work but the raw materials too. She developed her woodworking skills working for a joinery firm by day and making her own furniture by night. She started to undertake commissions in 2010 and soon after opened her workshop. ‘Establishing my business here, providing apprenticeships and employment, making the products of my imagination that clients will live with for a lifetime is the fulfillment of a dream’. Knowing the origin of the timber, bringing out its beauty, letting the timber sing – this intimate understanding of the material, often found literally at her feet, is Alice’s life.
