I received some woodturning tuition from the late Duggie Hart at the Cider Press Centre, Dartington, Devon, and some of my woodturning was exhibited there.
During the 80s my interest developed to incorporate furniture making. Thanks to Alan Peters, I was very fortunate to be able to spend seven years under the watchful eye of the late Trevor Pate at his Barbican workshop in Plymouth, Devon. Again some of my furniture was exhibited at the Cider Press Centre. In 2001 we moved to Dornoch while I was working for Visit Scotland as Quality adviser, and also setting up my workshop.
From January 2007 having now set up a workshop in Dornoch I had anticipated concentrating on producing quality items of furniture. This has been the case but I have had a number of requests for furniture with some carving. Having always had an interest in woodcarving I obtained further training from Chris Pye and Ian Norbury and also recently visited the ‘Unika’ exhibition in North Italy.
Also following numerous requests for woodwork tuition, I now run residential courses, aimed to help people develop their woodworking skills.
