A founder of the Headwaters Arts Festival, the Made of Wood Show and North of 89 Studio Tour, Mulmur woodturner Jim Lorriman has still found time to produce a vast body of work. He crafts his pieces from fallen branches and other found wood, including remnants of docks, flooring and window frames. His work is available locally at Dragonfly Arts on Broadway and The Bartlett Gallery in the Alton Mill, as well as at the Holiday Treasures at Dufferin Country Museum. His excellent website includes video of his technique. jimlorrimanwoodturner.com
