Edward Barnsley (1900 - 1987). Edward's father, Sidney with his uncle, Ernest, were the founders of The Cotswold School of furniture design and making. In 1923, Edward took over the workshop of Geoffrey Lupton in Froxfield, Hampshire, in which he had been apprenticed. In 1980 a trust was established to secure the future of the workshop and the opportunities for training and apprenticeships, which continue to the present.
