Although The ToolPost (
http://www.toolpost.co.uk) goes a long way to assisting enthusiastic woodturners and carvers with the development of their skills by providing the best
quality and most affordable woodturning tools, it's rare that one gets the opportunity to learn from a true master, in person. Well, that is precisely the opportunity that is now being presented to The ToolPost's clients,
with internationally-renowned woodturner Jimmy Clewes set to run a limited series of masterclasses.
And these classes really are "limited", with Jimmy stopping by at The ToolPost training
facility in Didcot, Oxfordshire to give just four days of two-day classes, on 12th/13th and 14th/15th November 2013. With a maximum of only four students allowed per course, places are expected to sell out quickly for
classes with this charismatic and in-demand woodturning specialist. Jimmy has long believed that personal tutelage is easily the best way to learn, so The ToolPost customers will not want to miss out.
Those who are already aware of Jimmy's work will know the depth of his tooling and design knowhow and the other skills, such as his woodfinishing
, that have won him success across the world. Many are already familiar with him from his highly acclaimed and bestselling range of DVDs, beginning with
Turnaround with Jimmy Clewes, which sold thousands of copies. This was followed by a series of 3-box set DVDs, including Turn it On with Jimmy Clewes, Turn it Up with Jimmy Clewes and Turning the World with Jimmy Clewes
which were overwhelmingly popular with woodturners of all abilities. He has also released a single 2-hour High Definition DVD, Back to Basics with Jimmy Clewes.
It is through these DVDs that users of woodturning
tools across the world have been introduced to some of the most effective ways of using their equipment, as well as to the witty and charming British humour that has helped to make Jimmy such an admired member of the woodturning fraternity. He now has more than two decades of woodturning and woodworking experience and is on the Register of Professional Woodturners here in the United Kingdom, in addition to being a member of the American Association of Woodturners in his recently-adoptive home country.
Known for his highly creative mind, Jimmy admits to being greatly inspired by the beauty of nature that he encounters as an avid sportsman and adventurer. However, in many ways, it is simply other people that most
drive him, commenting that "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 artform, expression is only as limited as one's mind and I
want to 'raise the bar' and create an awareness of the artform that has been virtually unknown to most people."
Now, he is making one of his increasingly rare returns 'home' as a freelance woodturning
demonstrator and teacher, and The ToolPost (http://www.toolpost.co.uk) is delighted to have him. Masterclasses are priced at £396 per student, and places can be booked by phoning +44 (0)1235 511101 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
