After graduating with an honours degree in Zoology, Matthew trained at Rycotewood College and then as an apprentice to Richard Fyson of Kencot, Oxfordshire. Steeped in the historical resonance of the Arts and Crafts philosophy and manifestations, Kencot was just two villages away from Kelmscott, the home of William Morris, a principal founder of the movement. A bike-ride away was the Cotswold village of Sapperton where Ernest and Sidney Barnsley and Ernest Gimson formed the Cotswold Group of Craftsmen. Matthew has taken their baton, dipped it in modernism and sustainable design values and run with it into the 21st century.
Matthew is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
