Stephen Ryan, from Green Woodwork Ireland, is based in the heart of Belfast’s Lagan Valley. His range of traditional woodcraft products include furniture, carvings, kitchenware, gift items, and other bespoke creations. With inspiration taken from traditional Irish life, each piece is carved by hand, using locally sourced hardwoods, and traditional handtools. The wood is shaped while it is still fresh. When dried the pieces are either left natural or completed with natural oils and waxes, giving each piece individuality and tactile touch. Stephen has a First-Class Honours Degree in Furniture Design and is a member of the Heritage Crafts Association and the Association of Pole Lathe Turners, Green Woodworkers and Associated Crafts.
