The story behind Ian Payne Woodturning

An Eye for Detail!

I took up woodturning in the autumn of 2020 determined to put my retirement to good use.

I love the creative process and learning about the hidden secrets within the wood that you expose as you are turning. It has been an exciting journey learning different woodturning techniques.

I am currently developing my own ‘style’ and design of turned objects, which include, somewhere, an element of beading and if the wood species permits, ebonising.

With the encouragement of my friends and family I now feel ready to share some of the things that I’ve made more widely.

I’m deeply grateful to my teacher and friend Kevin Hutson, a woodturner of 45 years, who has taught me so much and shown endless patience!
