Monthly featured Artist

Andrea Zanini

Andrea Zanini is from Alba, Italy. At a very early age, Andrea was influenced by his Grandfather who was a cabinet maker and antique furniture restorer. His first inlay work was at the age of 7, and his interest and passion for time in the shop continues to this day.

While in University, Andrea took some formal furniture and woodturning courses and while at home started to utilize his Grandfathers lathe. He credits meeting Richard Kennedy online, who helped with tools and techniques. In 2014 Andrea was able to spend a few months working with Richard which he describes as a wonderful and inspiring experience.

This month World of Woodturning celebrate Andrea as our Featured Artist of the month!

The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at wowadmin@shaw.ca. Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message.

The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, LLC and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
