Nick is so newly retired that his name in Google brings you to Fishguard High School (Ysgol Bro Gwaun) where, as head of the art department, he was responsible for the art policy and high ratings from his ex-students. He is now combining his creativity and craft skills in a new role as furniture maker and restorer. He makes one-off pieces, using local wood if possible, and brought some of his smaller pieces to sell at the Dinas Christmas Fair last Saturday. He makes tables, chairs and more, using elm, oak or ash but you’ll have to visit his workshop to see them. Here is a sample of his more portable items: lovely to look at and lovely to touch.
For more information about his work, here is Nick Kinver’s card. The card is beautifully designed and I (and my camera) take full responsibility for the wobbly lines and odd spacing. Some of Nick’s work is featured on his new blogspot site but remember that if you want to see the real thing, there’s not far to go. He lives on our side of Fishguard, a couple of miles along the A 487.
