Book signing with John Makepeace at Axminster store


John Makepeace OBE, award winning UK furniture designer and maker, will visit the Axminster Tools & Machinery store in Axminster in April to sign copies of his book ‘Beyond Parnham’.

John has a special place in the history of fine furniture making and has had an illustrious career as a designer, maker and teacher.

The book, published in 2017, celebrates 40 years since the inception of Parnham College in Dorset, described as ‘an educational phenomenon that inspired a generation of young designers and furniture makers’, and is a compilation of the recollections of over 100 alumni and guest contributors.

John will be available to sign books between 11am-1pm and 2pm-3pm on Saturday 13 April and looks forward to meeting fellow woodworking enthusiasts.
