Pat Carroll Interview:

Working as a builder/carpenter, woodturning was a craft I knew very little about before 2001. I had done some research and found a woodturner in my nearest town. Lucky for me, this woodturner was one of the finest turners in Ireland. Willie Stedmond, one of the founding members of the Irish Woodturners Guild, was giving night classes to which I attended a few. It is always my first advice to anyone interested in woodturning, get some lessons and join a club. I also did the latter and met some great people who helped and encouraged me along the way.

Terry Scott  Interview:

Being a born and bred New Zealander I have been exposed from birth to the awesome beauty of mother nature that all Kiwis freely enjoy. The amazing changing landscapes of this country and the diverse range of timbers available continue to inspire my woodturning. Such an environment fosters my innate passion and life long commitment to all things wood. In recent years my work has evolved and my creations can now be viewed in terms of wood art. I am honoured to have many such pieces residing in notable collections world wide.

MtW: Rebecca DeGroot InterviewRebecca DeGroot Interview:

Rebecca DeGroot started woodworking with her father at a very young age and continued to refine her skill through college. Six years after graduating with bachelor’s degrees in Art Education and Sculpture and Functional Art, Rebecca divides her time between her full-time career as an art educator and her passion for woodworking. Her days of teaching Art 1, Sculpture, Ceramics, Jewelry, and AP 3D Studio Art are fulfilling and the passion she shares with her students is the same fuel that keeps her in her shop late into the evenings letting her imagination run wild.
