our students

Sometimes we open our studio to people seeking general work experience or lessons in a specific area. We are very proud of our students.


Barnaby Ash

Barnaby came to Nafisi Studio for a few lessons to learn about wood turning and setting up a woodworking business before going on to launch his own brand with his partner Drew. Ash & Plumb make beautifully hand turned lighting, bowls and utensils - stunning definitely check them out.

Byron came to Nafisi Studio for a few months to experience working in a bespoke furniture studio in between his second and third year studying 3D Design at Northumbria University. He is exhibiting his chair at Young Furniture Makers Exhibition, which is a fantastic achievement, so well worth a visit on 9 October 2019.

Keep an eye out for his next steps @b.cb.c
