It has been an honour to work with internationally renowned master silversmith Michael Lloyd on a collaboration for His Majesty King Charles III, The Cross of Wales.

The cross incorporates a relic of the True Cross, the personal gift of Pope Francis and the cross lead the Coronation procession at Westminster Abbey. Truly a once in a lifetime Commission!

Woodturning is an extraordinary art.

There is nothing more satisfying than turning a piece of wood into a beautiful piece of work, channelling your inner creativity and completing a project to the highest possible standard.

I’m a professional woodturner and I specialise in crafting high-quality and technically-challenging pieces. I love exploring new and innovative ways of working with wood. I am available for bespoke one off pieces, production turning and tutoring.

Woodturning is my passion, when I’m not turning, I’m teaching others how to turn. I’m a fully qualified tutor with the AWGB and host classes in my purpose-built workshop just outside of Glasgow. Meet Darren.

My classes are suitable for anyone wanting to try something new or existing turners who would like refine their skills or try new techniques. Find the class thats right for you.
