Your time at the University

Martin Howlett

I choose Edinburgh mainly because it was the furthest place from where I lived. I wanted my University experience to be new and exciting and I felt this was the way to get that. To many memories to mention!

Tell us about your Experiences since leaving the University

My work at the moment is varied which keeps things fresh and exciting. I make one off pieces of furniture to commission and teach a number of evening courses at some local colleges. I write for the Furniture and Cabinet Making Magazine and I’m a committee member for the Young Craftsman of the year completion at the south of England show.
