About Arts & Crafts Yorkshire School

The Yorkshire School of the Arts & Crafts movement started with Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson'såÊ transformation from jobbing carpenter to master craftsmen. By the mid-1920s he had adopted his famous trademark and had his own workshop busily employing several men. The workshop grew and over the years many of the craftsmen have taken their skills and branched out. Most have adopted a trademark of their own, a fox, a lizard, a fish, a rabbit to name but a few, and whilst some have slavishly stuck to the Mouseman designs others have taken the style and adapted it. Other craftsmen, unconnected to the Mouseman workshop, have also chosen the classic Yorkshire Oak style as their own.Typical Yorkshire school items are in English Oak, with traditional pegged joints and adzed surfaces
