Description
I run a woodturning art and photography gallery/workshop in a converted blacksmiths producing high quality bowls and vases using local sourced sustainable greenwoods hardwoods (see my website below). We live next door in a small cottage which has a large vegetable garden with poly tunnel. I am continually moving towards a self sustained lifestyle centred around growing, raising, preserving and storing my own produce in an environmentally friendly, enjoyable and stress free environment.

Work is varied and seasonal. There is general woodworking, firewood, fencing, gardening, processing and preserving of garden produce. Possibly helping with butchery of local meat, venison, pork, lamb, smoking of salmon... There are several on going building and improvement projects as well as general maintenance, including grass cutting, hedging, weeding, painting. At times you will be working alongside me, or depending on your skill level you may be working alone. If you show an aptitude you may be working with me on the lathe preparing, finishing and turning or carving green wood.
