From his workshop in Four Marks, Hampshire, Martin Saban-Smith teaches, turns, and films his creative woodturning creations on social media. He also makes the popular Hampshire Sheen range of wax and oil finishes as well as blends the atmospheric Intrinsic Collection of coloured dyes. The shop on this site has the complete range of both product lines.
The workshop is fully equipped with 5 lathes, a complete extraction system, including air filter, complete sets of tools for all lathes as well as a host of other useful creative tools for students and workshop members to use.
His welcoming, friendly and informal approach to teaching woodturning are popular with newcomers and experienced turners alike and offers a range of courses, all of which are bookable on this site. There are also membership options to the club-type aspect to workshop.
Martin’s enthusiasm is contagious where students and visitors leave the workshop feeling energised and inspired to push their turning to the next level. Read the course reviews to find out what the students think!
