Michael Sinclair RPT Woodturner

WE HAVE NOW REOPENED OUR ONLINE SHOP

Phase 1 of the Scotland's route map through and out of the crisis will take effect on
Thursday the 28th May.
After having a chat with our local postmaster and following the governments guidelines on easing down we have decided to reopen our online shop.
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.
