My website remains open for business during this difficult time.

To see and buy my wooden bowls and other work, please scroll down the page.

A wooden bowl from my workshop would make a great gift. If you are looking for something for a wedding or birthday, you’ll find it here. Whatever you choose, it’s guaranteed to please!

As well as making beautiful hand-turned wooden bowls, I also offer woodturning classes.

I work with some of the most beautiful English hardwoods, all sustainably sourced. Almost all is material that would otherwise be lost. The best timber for making wooden bowls for sale often comes from trees that have fallen naturally in the woods or at the roadside.  I use timber reclaimed from buildings or furniture for some of my work.

I’m still open for business while the Covid-19 restrictions remain in force. Delivery by courier is charged at a flat rate of £3.75 for each order, so you save when buying two or more items together.

I’m happy to consider commissions for turned work. If you have a project in mind, please email me with details of what you need.

Woodturning classes

With many years’ experience, I offer one-to-one woodturning classes in London, working either with a single student or a class of two. I can send you a gift voucher to present to someone, although the class can’t take place until the Covid-19 restrictions end. Complete beginners can try woodturning for themselves and make their own beautiful wooden bowl to take home. This could be just the gift idea you are looking for.

My classes are suitable for people who want to try woodturning, perhaps before getting deeper into it, people who don’t have their own workshop facilities, turners who want to improve their skills and woodworkers who want to add turning to their repertoire. Also for anyone who just wants to spend some time having fun and trying something completely new!
