Carpentry is a Chipperfield family tradition and Curtis’ brother and uncle both worked for W.S. Lushers & Sons. Curtis followed in their footsteps and trained part-time as a Construction Training Specialist as well as gaining practical experience onsite. Upon completion of his three-year apprenticeship he became a fully qualified site carpenter and received a NVQ3. Curtis would like to work on historic building sites where restoration and conservation skills will be used.
