With only two turners left to introduce, our penultimate turner is the internationally recognised and multi-talented Jason Breach, who also happens to be a tutor at the Axminster Skill Centre.
Jason started turning at the age of 12 and still enjoys the challenge of developing ideas based upon using the lathe. He graduated from Buckingham College in High Wycombe with a furniture degree and as a result is very adaptable at turning his hand to most woodworking skills and projects.
Jason’s main interest lies in developing the turned wooden box, but he also turns a wide variety of other items. Jason’s turning and demonstration skills have given him the opportunity to travel extensively around the globe, including Australia, USA and Alaska. His varied skill set as a demonstrator makes him a highly valued asset to the Axminster Skill Centre where he teaches woodturning and other aspects of woodworking.
Jason has won many prizes including the Tony Boase Memorial Award at the AWGB Seminar and the Master’s Competition run by the Worshipful Company of Turners. Jason was also the winner of Strictly Woodturning in 2010. For more information about Jason and to view his work, please visit his website.
Please note that visitors to Ten Turners Turning will be asked to vote for their favourite turner; they will then be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a day’s tuition at the Axminster Skill Centre with two well known turners, one of whom will be Jason. This rare and exciting opportunity is not to be missed, so make sure you use your vote.
