Bursary for Entrepreneurial Women Woodturners

In August 2023, 9 professional and semi-professional female turners, from across the globe were welcomed to the stunning County Carlow, Ireland, Glenn Lucas Woodturning Study Centre, to participate in a five-day skills development workshop and exhibition.

Participants included Ena Dubnoff (USA), Danielle Flowers (England), Diana Friend (USA), Rabea Gebler (Germany/Japan), Marisa Klaster (the Netherlands), Maria Lindberg (Sweden), Kamilla Stokkevag (Norway), Annette Weber (Switzerland) and Elizabeth Weber (USA).


Turning alongside 8 inspiring leading females was so refreshing, learning from each other’s cultural design interpretations and techniques, while bonding over the collective aspiration to enrich woodturning. I have come away feeling alive with energy, new design ideas and techniques to explore.
Glenns thoughtful and informative tuition has given me the self-confidence in my own ability in turning and the motivation to push my own woodturning career into the next phase. Expanding my business into more timber milling, processing and sales of timber to British turners, signing the contract on a small timber yard in October 2023! – Danielle Flowers
