Event description

Description

Top UK woodturner, Tracy Owen, is back in store to wow us with his woodturning skills.

Tracy has won many awards at national shows for his innovative turning over the last 12 years or so. Having established himself as one of the few woodturning professionals to derive his sole livelihood from woodturning, Tracy specialises in green (or wet) woodturning of bowls and hollow forms to produce unique one-off pieces. He likes to use green wood as, when the wood is drying, it moves and adds character to the piece. Tracy also likes to add texture to his work which he achieves by sandblasting, carving, chain sawing and colouring.

For his demonstration, Tracy will be using the Axminster Trade Series AT1628VS lathe, focusing on bowls and hollowing. Tracy is on the Register of Professional Turners and has also written articles for Woodturning magazine.
