Nick James Design pop up shop at Cheeseburn

Whilst working at Cheeseburn last weekend I got to meet Nick James who was showing his work in the pop-up shop (he will be this weekend too). I really admire his ethos and way of working. The products he makes are outstanding.

"He’s an advocate of traditional woodworking techniques that are rare in contemporary practice. Every piece is made by Nick and his team of skilled craftsmen in his workshop at Mushroom Works in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK. Along with his team of expert makers, he uses the best time-tested methods of connecting pieces of wood by unbreakable joints and precise construction methods to create furniture that will last lifetimes."

I was pleased to see so many people buying work from him. Although his main passion is for developing new products and making the bespoke items of furniture, Nick also makes a range of small more affordable products such as wooden lamps and shades, chopping boards and clocks, some of which can be personalised and are available to purchase online. 

Nick spoke to me about how he has adapted his product range in order to cater for the online shopping market, but he is always happy to work with clients who would like to commission him to make products that meet their specific requirements.

I'm hoping that at some point in the future I will be able to be the proud owner of a Nick James product!
