Student, Tom Jarrold wins Alan Peters Prize
Congratulations to Tom Jarrold who has just won one of three Alan Peters awards for his 'Elixir' Drinks Cabinet. Awarded through Celebration of Craftsmanship this allows him to exhibit his cabinet for free at this top furntiure exhibition in August. Well worth a visit.
The Alan Peters Award commemorates a man dedicated to bespoke furniture and highly respected by all within the industry. Alan Peters OBE was also a great teacher, always keen to share and encourage. It is only fitting therefore that their award for students and emerging talents bears his name and respects his philosophy of excellence in every aspect of design and craftsmanship from timber selection to appropriate design.
The award is designed to encourage and promote emerging young talent within the bespoke furniture industry.
It gives up to three new designer-makers the opportunity to win free exhibition space for their entry at Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design. This allows winners to exhibit and network with established and highly regarded professionals within a selling environment, gaining valuable experience and exposure to a very discerning and knowledgeable audience.
