A Contemporary Woodturner

This illustrated feature on Contemporary Woodturner Andy Coates should be appearing in the next month or two.

I shot these images a couple of months back when I visited Andy’s workshop and gallery in Beccles.

I had never seen such delicate wood turning and craft skills before and I was completely transfixed by his style and design.

His workshop is well worth a visit! http://www.andycoates.co.uk/

A Suffolk Woodturner

Recently I spent time with Andy Coates, a professional woodturner based in Beccles. I’m working on a magazine feature exploring the wonders that Andy creates.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning, learning about the industry and watchingAndy turn an ordinary piece of wood into something rather exquisite…

The contemporary pieces that Andy creates are really quite something and unlike anything I’ve seen before.
