Suzanne Hodgson

Designer & maker of contemporary furniture and games.

Based in Chester, Cheshire I design and make bespoke high quality, traditionally constructed contemporary furniture and games mainly in wood but incorporating other materials such as glass, slate, stone and metal. Specially selected hardwoods, locally and sustainably sourced where possible, are used with the natural beauty of the timbers always being featured. My most recent work has become more sculptural, with textures achieved through scorching or carving.

If you require any information such as pricing or availability of certain items, or want to discuss the commissioning process in order to share in the design of your own unique item of furniture, simply call or email.


"The commissioning process continues to delight, with recent projects including a lit display case for one of the Tower of London poppies to be housed in Chester Cathedral and a chair specifically fitted to a client, calling on my previous life's work designing seating in an NHS specialised physiotherapy unit. The design process is always a pleasure, combining a client's thoughts with my ideas."

The exhibition is open daily 10.00am to 16.00pm.

Helfa Gelf Art Trail

Although my workshop is just outside Chester while I search for a new location nearer to Ruthin, I take the opportunity to display my work at home, where I have more space, for Helfa Gelf. I think items designed for the home are best seen in that environment. The address for the event, which takes place on 22, 23, 29 & 30 September from 11.00 to 17.00 each day is:

Ty Gwyn

St Meugans



LL15 1RD

More details to follow nearer the time.

5th Wilmslow Art Trail

This will take place 5 - 7 October 2018. Further details nearer the time.
