Samuel Souter (Associate Member) | srgs woodwork
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.
