Charlie Whinney Studio was set up by the artist in 2012. We pioneer new ways to work with steam bending to create beautiful low- carbon wood products to compete and take the place of other less eco-friendly materials where possible.

Charlie Whinney has created large-scale steam-bent art installations all over the world, as well as designing and making award-winning furniture and lighting.

Steam Bending is a term used to describe heating wood until it is pliable and may be bent into new shapes.

The workshop runs a year-round programme of woodwork courses from the forest-based studio in Cumbria including Beginners, 3 Day Pro and Makers Sessions & gift vouchers.

We also offer gift vouchers for our online live Lamp making workshops.

Charlie is the "Paul Hollywood of Steam Bending". This was an amazing class. It was really well prepared and fun. Charlie is a great teacher, very personable, encouraging and fund to be around. We never thought we'd make something as good as we did - and in our own kitchen to boot!

Charlie Whinney provided an exciting, informative and creative workshop.
Charlie provided a full set of equipment, samples and constant guidance to create a unique piece of work for each participant. Charlie supported each participant to fully attain their full creative potential with material, ideas and options for future projects.
I would highly recommend any workshops provided by the Charlie Whinney Studio.
