Huren Marsh in his workshop with second-hand furniture behind him

Expert insight into the skills needed to upcycle furniture

Huren Marsh is a designer-maker at Hive Studios (previously Artist Hive Studios) in Edmonton - a community group we supported through our North London Community Fund for their work around waste minimisation.

With a degree in furniture and product design and having taught his subject for over thirty years, he truly is an expert when it comes to sustainable design. We chatted to him about his background and work, and picked his brains on the skills you need to restore or upcycle furniture and avoid waste.

Read our blog on restoring waste furniture to learn more and get tips from Huren on spotting the potential in second-hand items.
