Charlie Whinney Studio exists to explore the relationships between materials, people and the environment.
Projects blur boundaries between fine art, architecture and design, and we make almost everything ourselves. We work contextually, ecologically, and we like beauty and innovation.
We have done commissions in China, Japan, Singapore, France, UK, Ireland and USA and also provide creative consultation (ideas and design) to public and private clients. Details of our unique wood-working courses can be found at www.learnsteambending.com

In 2008 Charlie Whinney Associates was formed near Oxford, and in 2010 we moved to a beautiful stone barn in Lake District National Park.
