Darren works from his premises in Lowestoft’s historic High Street in Suffolk, a stones throw from the UK’s most easterly point. His shop offers a wide range of tools and finishes, some timber and a selection of his own work alongside works by a select few other turners. He is on the demonstrator circuit, both in-person or via IRD’s, and offers 1 to 1 tuition from complete beginners to the more experienced. He has 3 lathes in the workshop, a VB36, a Wadkin RS8, and a Magma 175FU so can cater for most requirements.
His passion is for large scale turned, coloured and textured wall hangings, but also turns everything and anything. He is building up a reputation of being the ‘go to man’ in the town, for anything turned, alongside commission work, furniture repairs and restoration, and with years of experience in building and engineering, what he cannot do he knows someone who can.
He was recently commissioned to make a Ceremonial Mace for the University of Suffolk with a bespoke display cabinet, and has designed and created various commemorative plaques and other items for the local councils.
