Handsome and CO.

There is an inherent beauty in the natural quality and warmth of timber, and, when partnered with the unique relationship that only occurs between people and the built environment in which they inhabit, creates an intimate sense of belonging and personal identity. The Handsome & Co exhibition is a collective of works from local designer/makers who, together, make up the Handsome & Co workshop community. With beautiful timbers and quality woodworking at its heart, this collection encompasses the diversity and craftsmanship which stems from years of experience, training and knowledge fostered within a communal environment.

Handsome & Co is a Melbourne based school for furniture design. Providing skills and business training for artists and designers, in a two-year residency and fine woodworking skills to adult students attending evening woodworking courses. Dedicated to instructing and fostering an enthusiasm for woodworking, Handsome and Co is a school for traditional and modern woodworking techniques, with one important underlining principle; to instruct and demonstrate the methods of achieving the highest quality in both the design and manufacture in timber products. Handsome & Co offers courses in fine furniture making for everyone from beginners through to more experienced woodworkers.
