Nathanael Lloyd’s passion for craft began at an early age – by the time he was 12 he had built his first table, and his desire to be a Maker took him to London’s internationally renowned Building Crafts College. During his two-year course Nathanael furthered his knowledge of woodwork and joinery, gained the award for excellence and went on to win the Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers’ prestigious national competition, a lifetime distinction that earned him the title of Freeman of London.


Nathanael then gained a place at the iconic Edward Barnsley Workshop, Hampshire, recognised worldwide as a centre of excellence for furniture making training. While there he focused on learning traditional and centuries-old craft techniques, using hand tools to hone his skills to the very highest level and develop his own style of craftsmanship.


Since leaving the Edward Barnsley Workshop, Nathanael has worked creating bespoke furniture for other companies and is now dedicating his skill and creative vision to founding Anthony Lloyd Furniture.
