David Trubridge Mentorship

In 2008 Kent was awarded an Emerging Mentorship Grant to undertake a mentorship with acclaimed New Zealand-based furniture designer David Trubridge. Between October 2008-February 2009 Kent was mentored by David at his Cicada Studios in Hastings which furthered his conceptual and practical furniture making and design skills.

The Mentorship has assisted in strengthening trans-Tasman design networks and nurtured new dimensions in environmentally aware design in Australia and New Zealand. Kent is currently planning an exhibition for the new work later in the year.
