Mark Sanger, recently crowned champion at the Ten Turners Turning event at Axminster Tools & Machinery Nuneaton in March earlier this year, is going on tour.
Mark will be demonstrating at all the Axminster stores over the course of the next few months, starting at Warrington on 18 June and culminating in a meeting with Richard Findley (Ten Turners Turning champion 2014) on 4 March 2017 at Nuneaton.
Mark’s work features wood, mixed media, texture, form and colour, all of which are influenced by Far Eastern philosophies and cultures as well as the natural forms and textures found in nature.
About his work, Mark says: “My work is free flowing of simple form. I believe that it should evolve from the here and now, from the initial idea to completion. I may have an idea about what I am going to create, but beyond this my mind is kept open and receptive to changes that evolve along the way. On occasions it may take a different path than intended.”
Mark will be demonstrating from 10.00am to 4.00pm at the Axminster stores on the following Saturdays:
18 June – Warrington
9 July – Basingstoke
27 August – Axminster
17 September – Sittingbourne
15 Oct – High Wycombe
12 November – Cardiff
10 December – North Shields
4 March – Nuneaton
