From a very young age Franci had a passion for both the natural world and down to earth practical skills. In particular creating things from natural materials that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional.
Over the last decade or so he has been developing his skills set to learn as many crafts and traditional skills as he can manage. Now that he has mastered many of these skills he feels it's time for him to pass them on as others have done for him in the past as a way of keeping them alive.
Franci currently lives in Scotland with his three collie dogs and spends most of his time willow weaving, spoon carving, doing leatherwork and dabbling in all other skills and crafts. Plus whenever he can he will be out walking and camping in the Scottish hills and forests.
