Top UK woodturner, Tracy Owen, is back in the store to inspire us with his woodturning skills. Tracy is on the Register of Professional Turners and has also written several articles for Woodturning magazine.
Tracy has won many awards at national shows for his innovative turning over the last 13 years. Having established himself as one of the few woodturning professionals to derive his sole livelihood from woodturning, he specialises in green (or wet) woodturning of bowls and hollow forms to produce unique one-off pieces. Tracy likes to use green wood as, when the wood is drying, it moves and adds character to the piece. Tracy will be demonstrating his unique style of turning and texturing, which he achieves by sandblasting, carving, chainsawing and colouring.
