Unique pieces in local wood


Various products [Moonbeams Shop:Chris Williams, Woodcraft]

Chris Williams first learned woodwork at school on St Helena. He studied at the Technical Training Centre in Ladder Hill, learning turning from local craftsmen and the skills of inlay from the late Harold Nichols.

His skills are now so highly regarded that he is regularly commissioned to make special presentation gifts for retiring Governors and Bishops. In 2011 he made an inlay tray which was presented to HR Highness Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge on the occasion of their wedding.

He only uses local wood from sustainable sources. Each piece is unique.

Chris lives in Blue Hill, St Helena with his partner and family. His products are available exclusively from Moonbeams Shop.
