David W. Mead

With a lifetime in the woodworking trade, including 16 years as professional teacher, establishing the Auckland School of Woodworking is the realisation of a long term dream of its principal, master craftsman David W. Mead.

David passionately believes there is a real value, to both the individual and society, in teaching traditional woodworking craftsmanship by the same disciplined methods he was taught in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

Each course will offer up to six students the opportunity to access and absorb David’s impressive wealth of woodworking knowledge, in the comfort and safety of his studio workshop in Onehunga, Auckland.
