Based at Arreton Barns near Newport on the Isle of Wight, The Mulberry Tree Woodturnery  was started in March 2013 by wood turner Andy Fortune.

Andy had been a hobby wood turner since 1995 and finally realised his dream to start his own wood turning business with the help and support of his wife, Nikki.

Andy has many years of experience and specialises in making bowls, platters and hollow forms from locally sourced timber from the Isle of Wight.

He processes the timber for his own use and also supplies wood turning blanks, turning tools and equipment, and Chestnut finishes for customers through his shop

He also sells his own unique hand crafted turnery , takes commissions, and sells direct to the public at the Mulberry Tree Woodturnery gallery at Arreton Barns. He  provides locally sourced hardwood and softwood bowl blanks, boards and craft timber to local woodworkers and is the main Isle of Wight distributor of Chestnut finishing products, Record Power and Robert Sorby tools and equipment.

He provides beginners and intermediate bowl turning courses which have proved to be very popular and every participant has left with a broad knowledge of bowl turning and spindle turning techniques and the confidence to continue this fascinating craft on their own.

Andy is an active member of the Wight Woodturners which meets in Newport on the last Thursday of each month in the scout hut at St.Johns Road. (www.wightwoodturners.org.uk)
