Getting ready for my open studio...

10 September 2014, Arts, events and places, Would you like to leave a comment?

I’ve been busy getting things sorted for my open studio, which will be taking place during the second half of this month. My showroom has just been re organised, so I couldn’t resist taking some shots!

The photo’s below show everything in its final place – you may recognise a couple of the larger pieces from my website. However, there are many new pieces too, including the deep spalted beech fruit bowl and large burr oak platter...



The photo below shows some of the smaller pieces I’ve made – these have just been oiled and are almost ready for display…


New for this year will be a selection of beautiful handmade willow baskets and green wood gift items by guest artist, Phil Bradley – I’m going to see Phil on Friday, so will report back soon with some information and photo’s…

My open studio is part of the Cumbrian C-art trail and will include many artists and craftspeople from within the surrounding area. I will be open from 13th – 28th September every day (except Mondays) from 10am – 5pm – please call in and join me for a coffee!

I’ll be demonstrating all aspects of woodturning, from processing a large section of timber, to turning the finished piece. You can even have a go on the lathe, if you wish!
