About Us


Andy Coates RPT

Andy is on the Register of Professional Turners (RPT), supported by the Worshipful Company of Turners of London (WCT). Andy also serves on the Executive of the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain (AWGB) as Chairman, and serves on a steering committee for Voluntary Arts England (VAE).

Andy has a passion for decorative turning, and produces work which largely falls in to this category using predominantly locally-sourced native hardwoods and reclaimed wood where available. Andy, like most full-time turners, also has to turn his hand to small production runs, antique restoration, teaching, and demonstrating, and a week can be made up of any combination of the list.

Andy is available for demonstrations and talks, and is also open to client commissions.
