Lucinda Goulden

2023 QEST Scholar - Brush making and woodturning
Wiltshire

Lucinda is a woodturner and maker of heirloom quality handcrafted makeup brushes. 

She is dedicated to spreading awareness of brush making which is an endangered craft that Lucinda is passionate about reinvigorating in the UK.  She runs her own business from her self-built workshop in Wiltshire where she makes unique make up brushes and wooden homewares.  

A QEST Scholarship will see Lucinda train with three master craftspeople across America and the UK- A.S. Handover (hand-made brushes), Eli Polite (wood turning) and Nyanda Yekwai (jeweller).  She will learn knot making, mixing animal fibres, stone setting and turning different materials on a lathe including mammoth ivory, petrified wood, coral and meteorite.  

After enhancing her skill set, Lucinda endeavours to exhibit her work in galleries and to sell her make up brushes in high end retailers, offering an alternative to mass produced brushes.  Lucinda aspires to start teaching woodturning classes and take on her own apprentice one day. She hopes to pass on her brush making business to her two daughters in the future.  

My ambition is to showcase the art of brush making and woodturning by working with some of the world’s most exquisite materials, turning them into functional pieces of collectable art, made to last and to be cherished.
