Phillippe Kitsos

We are happy to have Phillippe with us through 2017/18 as part of the French Craftsman’s Guild ‘Compagnon Du Devoir’.

Phillippe along with Fabian who joined at the same time are the latest in a long line of skilled craftsmen who have taken one year placements with us from the Compagnon. they all come to us as experienced and highly skilled metalworkers, undertaking a seven year apprenticeship and are generally either in their last year of training or have finished their apprenticeship and come here to learn traditional forge work skills which have been largely lost in France.
