Young carpenters in Sussex have posed for the illustrations in two new textbooks.

Central Sussex College carpentry and joinery students Sam Folkes, 18, Charlie Barber, 17, and Shaun Scofield, 18,  will feature in the City & Guilds textbooks due to be published later this year, after the college was approached to provide workshops and models for the project.

Level one student Sam said: “It’s quite exciting to think we’re going to be in a textbook that will be seen by thousands of students up and down the country.”

Charlie said: “I was nervous at the start of the day, but I got used to the cameras — I can’t wait to get a copy of the book to see what the photos look like.”
