Richard Henley: I have worked with wood professionally since 1978, serving an apprenticeship
as a joiner and qualifying in 1982, while working in the boatbuilding industry,
fitting yacht interiors. During this time I also worked in cabinetmaking
workshops, producing traditional furniture from indigenous woods, in the
Knysna/Tsitsikama area. Furniture making became a passion and I left South Africa in 1982 for Rycotewood College in Thame, England, to do the City and Guilds of London advanced course in fine craftsmanship and design. A cabinetmaker by trade, I have spent most of my 40 year career in the Knysna area making furniture from our indigenous woods, combining traditional joinery techniques with contemporary design.
