Andy Coates

Andy Coates is a wood turner living and working in Suffolk where he runs a small gallery and workshop beside the river Waveney at Beccles.  He works predominantly with locally sourced native timbers, and has a special passion for decorative and sculptural work; although he can often be found making anything from stair spindles, clocks, antique restorations, or even capping pieces for old church roofs. In 2012 Andy was chosen by the Department for Business, Innovation as Skills as a “Craft Success” and was featured on the Government’s craft toolkit website.  Andy has collectors on three continents, and was commissioned to produce the prize for a national craft award in 2013.  

Suffolk Life magazine profiled Andy in 2015.

Andy teaches and demonstrates nationwide and is a member of the Register of Professional Turners (RPT), supported by the Worshipful Company of Turners of London (WCT).
