Granted Royal Charter in 1477, the Carpenters’ Company was formed to safeguard the interests of carpenters in London. The current hall was designed in 1960, following the complete destruction of the previous building during an air raid in 1941. By special arrangement, we tour the hall and meet woodcarver Shane Raven, who tells us about one of his most ambitious pieces to date, a carving of the breastplate of Caesar Augustus.
