Shetland Fine Craft is a small traditional workshop set up by Alexander Ward in the South Mainland of Shetland where he moved to in 2008 with his family.

Alex is a designer/ craftsman who has been making traditional and contemporary fine furniture professionally since 1993. The name of the business then changed to Shetland Fine Craft to reflect where he is  now currently residing.

He works mainly to private commission in both exotic and temperate hardwoods. In addition to fine furniture Alex also undertakes architectural and specialist joinery as well as furniture restoration, French polishing and upholstery.

Alex also offers small batch production and prototyping for industry.

Shetland Fine Craft has old fashioned values of producing fine quality furniture at a fair price.

Examples of Alex's work can be viewed and bought from The Shetland Artisan Shop, Toll Clock Shopping Centre, Lerwick.
