PICT0031My name is Philip Adams, and I am an apprentice furniture maker in Bangor, North Wales. I came here to study a BSc in Ecology at Bangor University, and fell in love with the area, the people, and my now wife Hannah. After graduating with a degree, I found myself desiring a more hands on, creative and gratifying career direction than that which academia offered me. I was drawn to woodwork, and through doing a three day course with Paul Sellers (whose apprentice I now am), I became aware of an accessible and exciting possible direction of work that I could commit my energy and passion too.
