For 20 years Brendan Stemp combined part time woodturning with a full time teaching career in art and craft. His original woodturning teachers were Richard Raffan and Vic Wood who provided him with not only a solid grounding but also the desire to make it a full time pursuit at some stage.
In 2005, after a move to rural Victoria, Brendan finally took the first tentative steps away from the classroom and started working full time with woodturning. He now concentrates predominantly on making unique pepper/salt grinders and bowls for the tourist market and the occasional gallery piece but also teaching and demonstrating.
He now has over 30 years of woodturning experience that he enjoys sharing with others.
