Long Name. Short Story.

Kathleen Short, Woodturning Baroness

It's a long name, but how I came to be a turner is a short story.

I took a course, loved it, bought a lathe.

Becoming a Baroness was just as short. The title was a birthday present.

It came with a certificate but no tiara.


I'm excited you're here.

I’ve loved woodturning since the first time I picked up a gouge and turned my first bowl. Everything from sourcing the wood, planning what I’m going to turn, and having to change that plan because the wood has different ideas. I have had to accept that my big salad bowl has become more shavings than an actual bowl and I now have a coaster.

Creating gives me comfort in times of stress and turning is my happy place.
