The Edward Barnsley Workshop: A 100 Years of Craft

Edward Barnsley (1900-1987) was one of the most important British furniture makers of the 20th century. Barnsley trained with Geoffrey Lupton (1882-1949), and in 1923, he took over Lupton’s workshop in Froxfield, Hampshire. Barnsley believed in the importance of local materials, traditional techniques, and the contribution of the skilled maker to the success of a piece of furniture. Today, an Educational Trust provides much needed support for the training of apprentices to continue Barnsley’s legacy.
