Description

Come and meet Emma Cook, also known as the Tiny Turner, demonstrating woodturning and carving.

Tiny Turner Emma has been involved with woodwork since the age of 16 when she was intrigued by and marveled at the creations her younger brother and her uncle were producing on their lathes.

Within a couple of years, Emma became a student of Tony Wilson, a seated woodturner. And through Tony, she started to be involved in various woodworking shows meeting many new people with all sorts of skills.

At the North of England Woodworking & Power Tool Show in 2008, Emma met Michael Painter - one of the few Master Carvers left in the UK. It was he who suggested she try carving.

After two years of sporadic lessons from Michael (while she was trying to complete a degree in Performance Design at Leeds University), he offered to train Emma professionally. And really, that is where she is at the moment… still working with Michael with the aim of becoming the next Master Carver in England.
