John Makepeace's career has been described as an adventure in wood.
Following an inspirational visit to Copenhagen’s great cabinet makers as a teenager, John found design and craftsmanship came naturally to him. Early professional recognition led to work as a design consultant to the all India Handicraft Board, co-founding the UK Crafts Council and acting as Trustee of the V&A.
John has received a Lifetime Achievement Awards from the American Furniture Society and the Furniture Makers Company. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Arts University Bournemouth and Hereford College of Arts.
