Monthly featured Artist

Helen Bailey

After perusing Helen’s album, ask yourselves how this output was inspired by attending a pen turning demo at her father’s club! Helen began turning in November of 2016. In this short span she has developed an incredible skill set through study and hard work, incorporating aspects of many turners’ work into her own. She must certainly hold the record for the highest percentage of WoW covers received to postings made!

The WoW family is fortunate to have Helen as an active and contributing member and is pleased to honor her as the Artist of the Month for April 2021.


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.
