I have always loved Medieval and Renaissance music and have been fascinated by the instruments developed during those periods. This led to me study Early Woodwind Technology at the London College of Furniture, where we were encouraged to make exact copies of surviving instruments.


In my workshop I have developed those skills to make instruments based on existing models, but adapted for the modern musician: bearing in mind requirements for ease of fingering; modern pitch; and using only sustainable, locally sourced woods.


I make  tabor pipes based on those found on the wreck of the Mary Rose (Henry VIII's flagship), and a medieval recorder based on one found in a 15th Century latrine in the Polish city of Elbląg.


This year I have added Renaissance flutes, based on instruments made by the Bassano family. I also plan to make some based on the work of the Rafi family.
