Phoebe Everill will discuss her design process, starting with an idea and working through to the completed piece, using some completed projects to illustrate her points. Along the way, she’ll talk about how she ended up as a studio woodworker, and reflect on being a woman in a traditionally male area of work.  

Phoebe started off life as a tradie, and established a successful carpentry and renovations business that focussed on personalised designs and exquisite finishing.  She then turned her eye fine furniture by moving interstate to study at Sturt School for Wood in 2009. In 2011 she completed a Certificate IV in Furniture Design & Technology. In 2012 she was an Artist in Residence at Sturt, providing a studio space and machine access to further develop her portfolio.  Phoebe is a member of Studio Woodworkers Australia, and is the Chair of that body.
