Why not come and try a woodturning
course with professional woodturner Tracy Owen in
his studio in Cheshire. Tracy is on the Register of
Professional Woodturners and as well as running courses he demonstrates at woodturning clubs and
shows throughout the UK and overseas. He has also written articles for 'Woodturning' magazine over
the last six years.
Tracy turns functional and decorative vessels often incorporating texture and surface enhancement. This
is achieved by carving, sandblasting, piercing and sometimes colouring. Tracy gets a great amount of pleasure from passing on this knowledge to people of all ages and
seeing them master the art of woodturning.
This is the workshop in which the courses are held. This fully equipped 500 square foot purpose built workshop houses a VB36, two Powermatic lathes and a small Nova lathe which gives the student plenty of choice. There is also a sandblast cabinet, two bandsaws, a vacuum chucking system and just about every hand tool imaginable. It is fitted with an efficient dust extraction and air filtration system which makes it a very comfortable room to work in. For the winter months there is a woodburning stove to
keep you warm.
