My name is Helen Bailey and I have been turning since November 2016. My dad was an influential part of my interest in woodwork.
He was always very hands on and supportive of my interests. I took to woodturning very quickly and found all the pitfalls that were there to be had. From attending seminars and joining my local club, my skills have developed to help me on my journey.
I am now influenced by many turners of many disciplines of woodturning. I try to incorporate all aspects into some of my pieces, with piercing been a favourite at the moment.
Its a wonderful journey and I am loving every step of it.
Helen will be doing a collaborative piece with Jimmy Clewes. On a trip to Las Vegas, Helen and Jimmy did some brain storming for another fly on the wall demonstration for MTW. Helens second demonstration will be one of her signature three piece goblets.
