Even if you are not into woodturning, listening to Mark Sanger and seeing some of his work may provide the inspirational nudge that motivates you to take up this traditional and well loved craft.

In the video footage, Mark talks about how he first got into woodturning, the influence of his grandfather, the importance of passing these skills on to future generations and what to expect on the forthcoming Axminster tour.

The tour kicks off in Warrington on Saturday 18 June and finishes in Nuneaton on 4 March 2017, when Richard Findley will also be turning alongside Mark.
