Meet Michael Martin
After working for several years as a commercial and creative writer Mikey decided to change career paths and pursue something more fulfilling in the world of craft. Having barely looked inside a clock before, he enrolled at West Dean Collage of Arts and Conservation in the clocks conservation department for three years, attaining a Foundation Degree Arts (FDA) and a Professional Development Diploma (PDD). It proved to be a subject that satisfied his combined interests of art, science and history, whilst getting to develop and use practical hand skills. He now uses those skills daily, working alongside and learning from experienced, professional clockmakers.
