← Back to Tutors

Chris Helliwell is an artful bodger! Bodging is the traditional wood-turning craft, using green (unseasoned) wood to create cylindrical wooden woodturning via a pole lathe. Chris works with ancient tools and methods to create everything from dibbers to chair legs, goblets and poles.

He has exhibited his work and demonstrates and teaches his art at events across the region.

“It was a very relaxing yet energetic day - just what I needed!”
