Regarded by his contemporaries as one of the best cabinetmakers, the late Ernest Joyce not only supervised his own hand workshop but also acted as part-time Head of Furniture at one of the leading Colleges of Art until his retirement in 1969. Alan Peters carried out a 7-year apprenticeship to Edward Barnsley followed by a two-year spell at college on a craft teacher-training course. He then won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London to study interior design. He established his first workshop in 1962, and moved down to Devon in 1973. He has won numerous awards and honours throughout his professional career, and in 1986 his work was the subject of a one-man touring exhibition. In 1984 he published Cabinet-Making: The Professional Approach.
