ABSTRACT
The article reports that the traditional craft of Orkney, Scotland, chair making seems to be secure for at least one more generation. At the age of 19, Fraser Anderson has ignored the lure of life in the cities, by remaining in Kirkwall, Scotland, on the Orkney mainland to start his own company making the distinctive hand-crafted, straw-backed chairs and other ancestral Orkney furniture. To help him start the company, Orkney Enterprise has given him a grant of 1,700 pounds towards the cost of tools and equipment and he has also qualified for business start-up assistance, which gives him a monthly wage of 200 pounds for 10 months.
