Michael Sinclair RPT Woodturner

OUR ONLINE SHOP IS OPEN

Update 23rd June 2020
As of today tourism has still not re-opened for the islands.
We are continue with our online shop and are very grateful for the support from our customers.
At the moment we are unsure how viable it will be to open our gallery to visitors when restrictions are further relaxed. Our premises are quite small and we may not be able to meet guidelines. As the safety of our customers and ourselves is paramount we will look at this further when more information is available. In the mean time please enjoy the online gallery and get in touch if you require any more information on the pieces for sale.
IF YOU ARE AN OVERSEAS CUSTOMER PLEASE CONTACT US FOR POSTAGE RATES
Pieces purchased will be posted once a week on a Friday
to cut down on trips to the post office.
Hope everyone remains safe and well.
All the best
 
Michael & Sara

 

Michael, a born and bred Orcadian, who has been practicing the craft of wood turning for over 25 years, is self-taught. Michael has honed his skills using a combination of practice, experimentation and his desire to produce fine attractive pieces. He was accepted onto the Register of Professional Turners in 2017

Influence and inspiration is drawn from the works of Neolithic inhabitants of ancient Orkney. During the long bright summer days, the light on the landscapes inspires new designs, while the long dark nights of winter is the time when he is most productive in his workshop.

Wood is obtained from sustainable sources and is processed on site with our own sawmill, from log to finished piece.

The traditions and culture of the islands are an important part of Michael’s life and his work reflects his affinity with Orkney and its heritage of craftsmanship.

All this results in Michael creating unique, tactile pieces to enhance any home or other surroundings.

Our wood turning business is run from our home where we have a small gallery and visitors are also welcome to see the workshop.
