All courses are run by Dylan Walker and Paddy Cox.

Dylan Walker formed Artizans in 2013. He learned traditional timber framing techniques and construction skills as an apprentice to Ben Law and has focused on working with timber in the round and creating more sustainable buildings since 2006. His teaching style is patient and understanding and his down-to-earth manner makes even the trickiest techniques easy to understand. He loves being a part of the course attendees’ journeys and his enthusiasm and passion for his subject is infectious!

Paddy has been a researcher in environmental sciences for many years. Since 2009 he has been involved in designing and building eco-structures, with a particular interest in utilising the natural resources that are found locally, such as timber and straw bale. Paddy assists Dylan in sharing and promoting traditional wood crafting techniques and the management of woodlands for the benefit of individuals and communities.
