I have been turning wood since just before the end of the last century. I have been demonstrating turning at home and overseas for 20 years and teaching it for over 15 years. I have written many articles for the woodturning press and for the web. In 2011 I was awarded the Tony Boase Tribute award at the AWGB international seminar. I am an AWGB approved tutor and a tutor assessor. My aim is to provide you with the knowledge and techniques to take your woodturning to the next level and I teach all levels from complete beginners to experts.
