Matt has been teaching greenwood furniture making for over 10 years. He has worked for many years at Clisset Wood in Herefordshire teaching Windsor Chair making alongside respected chair maker Gudrun Leitz.
Matt worked for many years at Hereford Community Farm. Much of this teaching was with adults with learning difficulties and people living with mental health problems. Over this time he saw the positive impact creativity can have on some of the most vulnerable people in society.
Matt also taught at the Small Woods Association in Telford running the Build a Bench project. This project works with long term unemployed people many of whom are living with mental health issues, long term substance abuse or social isolation.
