Second Guild Mark Awarded for Furniture design and furniture making October 2009

Marc Fish was awarded my second guild mark in October this year for my Japanese Cabinet for details see www.marcfish.co.uk This is a great honour and will gain further exposure for The Workshop. To get a Guild mark requires excellence in design, craftsmanship, materials and functionality. The Guild Mark scheme was set up to promote excellence in Furniture Design and Furniture Making. It was set in 1951 and has issued some 400 plus guild marks averaging just 8 per year. This is the highest award for furniture making in this country.
Cabinet making has long had a history in this country and the furniture designer / makers are now producing work that easily equals any from the golden age of furniture making.
