Diary - Upcoming Events

I travel to various fairs and shows to talk about my woodturning and show my pieces I have made. They are for sale of course! People can come and see me, ask about special commissions, appreciate the quality of the wood and see the differences between different timbers!

I have none currently aranged at the moment.

Speaking Engagements

I am very keen to tell people what I am about, being a visually impaired wood turner and a little bit of my history in overcoming the difficulties of learning a new skill and also learning to cope with everyday life.
I want to show people that blind people are not useless and cannot work!

I get invited to speak at various functions, clubs and other meetings. see below for my diary.
