Here at Crazy Hare Design we offer custom designed hardwood furniture, gilding, and artistic metalwork. I left school looking for a course that was very hands on and landed my self in an NC in game-keeping where I found my love for the outdoors the countryside and the process' of keeping an established and balanced ecosystem. unfortunately jobs where few and far between and I found myself at a loss. after this still pursuing a job working with my hands i came across blacksmithing and loved the artistry and sculptural elements and also the structural stability involved in forging metal. wanting to further my making abilities I came across the Chippendale school of furniture, where I learned about design and furniture making and an array of other skills including gilding, marquetry and the various disciplines in fine woodworking. I am now based in Haddington still at the school but now renting work-space there.
