Woodworker

Samuel Souter is a maker of bespokehandcrafted wooden furniture and homeware items. He created srgs woodwork in March 2020 in order to provide a friendly small-scale, customer-led service, whilst also producing his own range of functional homeware to sell at fairs and exhibitions. When designing items, he tends to gravitate towards a style of woodwork that is quite angular and linear. He likes crisp, sharp lines and items that benefit from careful proportions and balance. They’re often quite simply designed – with an appreciation for un-fussy designs himself, his pieces tend to have a simplicity and modesty to them.

During 2019 Samuel made the decision to resign from his job within historic building conservation in order to become a full-time, self-employed maker of woodwork. Whilst working with historic buildings he was always drawn to the practical work carried out. The tools, materials and construction methods still in operation and borne out of centuries of making and repairing held real fascination, and the necessary, tangible craft skills learnt and honed greatly appealed. The draw from an office-based job towards a practical vocation was too strong to ignore, and not a day goes by that he regrets the life-changing decision to become a craftsman.

Samuel is based in rural north-east Herefordshire, not far from the small market town of Bromyard and welcomes visitors to open studios or otherwise by appointment. Commissions of any shape and size are always welcomed, and he is happy to informally discuss potential projects over the phone, via email, or an in-person visit.
