… apprenticed at the Dick Reid Workshop in York and went on to set up his own business in 2004. Previous to joining Dick Reid,  Iain worked for many years as an artist/craftsman in London and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art.

Iain regularly takes on one off design projects and commissions as well as gets involved in major building redevelopments and restorations.
