Tom Green is a Craftsmen, Video Maker, and Author with workshops in London and Norfolk.
I started out many years ago to become a wheelwright, the person who makes the wooden wheels for carriages, which would then be passed on to a blacksmith to fit the tyres, which would then pass on to the wainwright to make the carriage, the trimmer for the upholstery, and so on. What I rapidly discovered that very few of these crafts exist anymore and those which do have very little to do with carriages, so if you want to do one bit you really have to do them all and so began the craft journey to get me where I am today.
After 20 years of learning I now consider myself proficent in Wood, Leather, and Upholstery, and I am not bad as a blacksmith. For videos of my work have a look at https://www.youtube.com/user/heritagecraft Along the way I have made wheels, carriages, furniture, armour, charcoal, mattresses, knives, and all manner of leather bags and belts. My project for this summer is a Horse Drawn Ice Cream Machine.
