      Signature Workshops are designed for intermediate/advanced level students. A firm grasp of proper tool techniques, tool use and sharpening techniques is required of all participants. If you are unsure if your current skillset is sufficient to benefit from a Signature Course, we’d recommend that you participate in a Woodturning 201 Workshop prior to enrolling in a Signature Workshop. Doing so will better prepare you and help avoid a discouraging experience or being “in over your head”.
      Jimmy is not your ordinary woodturner. Upon a first meeting one would think of him as a renegade, a free thinker, and perhaps not the stereotypical woodturner. His charming British style, unending wit, creative mind and magnetic personality are only some of the attributes that make him popular in the woodturning demonstration circuit.

      When asked what drives him, he shares, "My energy comes from those around me. When I can stir the creativity of one's mind, that for me is very satisfying. As with any art form, expression is only as limited as one's mind and I want to raise the bar and create an awareness of the art form that has been virtually unknown to most people."
