Warrington Store - Woodturner Helen Bailey Live

FREE Woodturning Demonstration

Personable and passionate, Helen Bailey is fast becoming a recognisable face on the woodturning scene. Since picking up her first tool, only 5 years ago, Helen’s work has received many accolades and she’s a regular contributor to the World of Woodturners website. During this FREE demonstration Helen will discuss and showcase the techniques she uses to create her award-winning pierced wood forms, including:

- How to achieve a thin walled (even thickness) vessel, including machine set up, wood choice and grain orientation, tools to make the cuts, measuring wall thickness and how to avoid common problems.

- How to mark out and cut pierced patterns, including the techniques for piercing, scratching, stippling, recessing and surface carving. As well as what tools and files to use and favoured design elements.

- Sanding and finishing methods that accentuate the detail and help to avoid damage.

If time allows Helen will end the day with a short demonstration of how she creates her beautiful turned pendants. This is a wonderful opportunity for woodturners of any ability to immerse themselves into the world of decorative forms, to see Helen’s individual style, have their questions answered and learn how to create their own pierced works of art.

We recommend arriving on time to gain the full benefit of this demonstration but spaces are limited to only 30 people, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Depending on Government guidelines we may not be able to provide refreshments so please bring your own soft drinks. We kindly ask that you observe any safety measures in place within the store.
