Matt is officially joining Upcycle Studio!

It’s official, Matt is leaving his teaching job in July and will be joining Upcycle Studio permanently!

Upcycle Studio started as a passion project during furlough and soon became so much more. In the past two years, we have worked hard to perfect our technique, pick up on trends and define our own style.

Matt started out by helping when I had big commissions on and has gradually spent more and more time working with me to become Chief Sander.

Currently, Matt works around school hours to prep and sand furniture pieces in addition to priming and finishing them, too. Now that he will have more dedicated time, he will be focused entirely on the furniture side of the business to build our capacity for commission spaces and create our own pieces for the collection.

He will also become our Business Manager – taking ownership of the accounts and operations.

This new change will mean that I can focus on all things creative, building up our homeware offering and expanding our reach into new markets and stockists.

We’re really looking forward to this next step in moving the business forward and all the opportunities that it could bring.

We are currently working on our first collection of furniture together which should be available in Autumn. For regular updates, follow us on Instagram @upcycle_studio.
