Andy Walters – Wood turner & Owner of Black Isle Woodturning

Andy originally trained as a Mechanical & Electrical engineer and worked for a small engineering company in South Yorkshire before starting his own metal fabrication business in 1996. He won New Start up Business of the year in 1997 and later went on to work in education, teaching Craft, Design and Technology. Whilst working in Education, he developed an interest in working with wood and began producing, exhibiting and selling his own work. As his passion for woodturning grew, he used his teaching experience, engineering background and artistic flair to develop his skills and knowledge and made the decision in 2010 to pursue a career as a semi-professional wood turner and tutor. Now in 2014, Andy has recently taken over the running of Ullapool Woodturning Centre and established Black Isle Woodturning on the Black Isle, Ross-shire, Scotland.

After much deliberation I have decided to give up the Vicmarc dealership to allow me to concetrate on my own work and the ever increasing demand on my Full Story...

I did the one day beginner's course with Andy in July 2014. It was a fantastic day, Andy is a superb teacher who can easily instill confidence into anyone. I found the course to be both extremely interesting and productive. Highly recommended to anyone wishing to take up woodturning.
