Robert Williams of Pearl Dot Workshops London

Dylan was very pleased to welcome Robert to his workshop in the Ironbridge Gorge.  When studying at Shoreditch College in the 1970s Ernest Joyce – ‘The technique of furniture making’ was on of the text books. The fourth edition revised by Allan Peters has a number of examples of Robert’s work , particularly his famous Plank Back Chair of which he produced some 3000 in his working life.

 Robert is now retired but Dylan was honoured to spend time with him talking about furniture making.
