Based at Porchfield Business Park near Newport on the Isle of Wight, The Mulberry Tree Woodturnery  was started in March 2013 by Andy Fortune.

Andy had been a hobby wood turner since 1997 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.  Many pieces are laced with leather or copper wire in the style of the Japanese philosophy of ‘Wabi-Sabi’.

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

He sells his own unique hand crafted turnery, takes commissions, and sells direct to the public at the Mulberry Tree Woodturnery  workshop. 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 his 5* rated beginners and intermediate bowl turning courses for groups and individuals, 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 4th Thursday of each month in the scout hut at St.Johns Road. (
