January In The Studio : Bellerby & Co Globemakers

It’s been a busy month post holidays, getting back on track and starting a new.

We had a new apprentice Eddy start at the beginning of the month as well! He will work through 6 months or so of training before making the smallest size globe, allowing the current junior makers to train to do larger ones.

You might notice a different sort of globe filled with illustrations, this is a collaboration we will announce later in the year!
