"Jocelyne not only carried out the work efficiently but also translated my ideas for the space into a wonderful reality." Rosie Moore

The Maid

Jocelyne has worked as a carpenter for nearly a decade. She previously traded under the name Jocelyne Knight Carpentry in and around London. For the last five years she was the sole carpenter for the Moss Bros group, refurbishing display and storage spaces and maintaining the fabric of over 150 clothing stores plus a number of properties across the country.

Jocelyne moved to Lewes, East Sussex to set up on her own as Maid of Wood to offer a range of carpentry services. She has a City and Guilds 1 and NVQ level 2 in carpentry, and a Fine Art degree - qualifications which prove invaluable in realising her clients' ideas.

As a female carpenter in a male-dominanted trade, Jocelyne offers an approach which combines practicality with sensitivity. Her understanding of domestic arrangements is particularly appreciated by women!

Maid of Wood offers a tuition service to people who are keen to have a go at their own DIY jobs but are not quite sure how to go about them.
