Jim Higginson

Jim completed an art foundation course, gaining skills in drawing, sculpture and metalwork.  He started a BA in Painting at Canterbury Christchurch but, after the first year, realised he wanted to follow a more vocational path.  Jim knew he wanted to be a craftsman of some sort but it wasn’t until he built a skin-on-frame canoein his spare time that he realised boat building was the craft.  After completing the course Jim wants to gain experience in the industry and then think about setting up his own business.
