I teach and demonstrate woodturning art. I have been turning now for 7 years and been with the Register of Professional Turners 4 years. I travel all over the country demonstrating at woodturning clubs and power tool shows, all my work is sold through various Art galleries around North Yorkshire.
Every piece of wood I use has different characteristics, and I enjoy seeing the pleasure on my students faces when they create there first piece. I have one 12 year old girl who recently came for her third lesson and she told me her father made her save her pocket money to pay for it herself.
This is not just a job, but a hobby and teaching people about something that i have a strong passion about is really fun and makes me and the clients feel really good about themselves.
