Carl Austin - Open Studios

23 — 31 May

Explore the Open Studios around the Fal River in the Fal River Festival. Artists and crafts people around the river throw open their doors for the public to have a look.

A furniture maker by training and education, Carl came to Cornwall ten years to work on wooden boats.


After spending a few years knocking old wooden boats around, he was commissioned to build a couple.

Being exposed to Falmouth's working boat heritage and a few years of "mucking around in old boats" began to work its magic.... Three years ago Carl began experimenting with building furniture using wooden boat building techniques and materials.
