HOWARD FENN (b.1953)
Howard Fenn was born in Conisborough, a mining village in Yorkshire. He was educated at the local comprehensive school before going to Dartington Hall School in Devon which had a crucial and lasting effect on the development of his personality, work and private life.
Howard trained at Sir John Cass School of Art, now part of London Guildhall University, and gained a distinction in the Design and Craftsmanship of Silversmithing where he also won a number of prizes and commissions. In 1979 Howard set up his own workshop in London near Tower Bridge. In 1994 he moved to spacious new premises in what used to be London’s old leather market, close to London Bridge.
He has also been involved with architectural metalwork, lighting and furniture and worked in collaboration with the London Glassblowing Workshop and with stone carver Alec Peevor.
