Peter Thuring

For many years, as a wood carver, sculptor, gilder and restorer of antique furniture and picture frames, Peter Thuring has worked for The National Trust, the Royal Collection, museums, institutions and private collections worldwide.

He feels now that the time has come to share his work experience with a younger generation and is very keen in this digital age to celebrate the hands on experience and satisfaction gained by a combination of physicasfal and cerebral application to the whole process of woodcarving.

The intimate atmosphere and fertile ground of City & Guilds of LondonArt School, with its small groups of students , lends itself  to the exciting prospect of building a professional career after leaving the college.

Says Peter, ‘I hope to be a part of the teaching team and to enrich the students further through my practical knowledge and understanding of this fascinating subject.’
