Steam bending demonstration with Joshua Till at Manchester Craft & Design Centre, Manchester, 8 April 2017, free entry - Visit now

Steam bending is a traditional process, steeped in history. Once a vital practice used to produce the hulls of boats and to make tools and weapons, with the advance of technology it has become less common.

Economically and environmentally responsible, the technique has enabled Joshua to experiment and develop a new, exciting furniture collection, on display at MCDC in his first ever solo exhibition, Modern Twist.

See Joshua in action at this special event, part of BBC Get Creative Weekend, learn more about the history of steam bending and find out why he hopes to keep the heritage of this dwindling craft alive.
