The Institute of Carpenters

The Institute of Carpenters is a professional membership organisation for those working in wood trades. It was founded in 1890 by eleven craftsmen who had achieved first class passes in the new exams set by the Worshipful Company of Carpenters, one of the oldest livery companies in the City of London. They are very proud of their heritage and history and, more than a century later, are still committed to the original aims of ensuring each generation of carpenters and joiners upholds the highest traditions of this historic craft.
