Robin Wood is a leading green woodworker in the United Kingdom and is well-known globally through his blog posts and use of social media to celebrate the story of traditional craft. His woodworking interests range widely—traditional Japanese tea houses to Viking ships, but his passion lies most strongly in crafting useful woodenware. Robin was named 2009 Artisan of the Year by Country Living magazine in the UK and is the chair of the Heritage Crafts Association. He speaks and teaches frequently, but notes that his aim now is simply to make the very best wooden bowls and plates that bring a little quiet beauty into everyday life.
