Woodturning lessons

I am a qualified adult educator and I now run woodturning courses in my workshop. The tuition encompasses all aspects of turning from beginners to the more experienced turner who wishes to learn different techniques. I also teach thread chasing which is the art of cutting a thread in wood whilst the wood is rotating, not to be confused with just tapping a thread. I also work with pewter and bone and courses can be tailored to suit your needs. Book for a full day (with lunch included) a half day or just an hour or two. Bring your own tools and I will show you how to sharpen them. I am happy for you to contact me and discuss your woodturning needs.

Segmented turnings

These are two pieces that I have made to take with me to the Irish Woodturners Guild seminar in October. The one on the left is made from Maple, Wenge , African Blackwood and Jarrah Burr.

The one on the right is made from Maple and Purple heart. Both of these pieces will be available for purchase

in Wiltshire Crafts of Lacock shop from 17th October 2017. Each is approx. 8 inches tall.

 

Latest news

I am pleased to say that last year at the Annual General Meeting of the Register of Professional Turners, which is supported by the Worshipful Company of Turners of London, I became the third ever Chairman of the RPT. This is a great honour for me and now nearly one year on I am looking forward to hosting my first AGM as Chairman.
