Innovative or Traditional – always Quality and Excellence
Founded in 1978, the Register of Professional Turners comprises skilled woodturning artists who have a professional approach and are craftspeople to trust. All members will have undergone a rigorous assessment before being accepted on to the roll of the Register.
It is here where you will find a woodturner who will be able to carry out your request whether it be crafting gorgeous, stair-spindles, creating a piece of sumptuous art work, or teaching and demonstrating the craft of woodturning.
Our list of members will help you identify a woodturner by their specialisms and services. It provides career outlines with many of our members providing a gallery of previous work to give you an indication of their individual details, skills, expertise and innovation on offer.
Please do not hesitate to make contact with those listed – you will be assured of a warm and helpful welcome.
