How best to describe Dylan Pym?  Eccentric, passionate, engaging and very amusing.  A designer, banjo player, former shepherd, traveller and occasional vocalist.

Dylan Pym is a maker with a passion for English hardwoods from which he creates beautifully crafted and highly original furniture. All his wood comes from the thinning and maintenance of local woods and hedgerows, most of it sourced from within a 20 mile radius of his workplace in the East of England. Dylan also conducts workshops on the technique of steam bending and gives advice on tree planting.

Dylan will be giving talks throughout the day on English Timbers and yes, he started his working life as a shepherd. He’s a fascinating man.
