“I’m Chris Fisher RPT, also known as the Blind Woodturner. I am the UK’s only completely blind professional woodturner, and the first blind turner to be accepted on to the Register of Professional Turners.
I lost my sight in 2008 at the age of 39, and over a period of four weeks due to Toxoplasmosis. Following a year of rehabilitation, I took up woodturning so that I could make myself a vampire stake! I’m a huge horror film fan!
I taught myself how to woodturn by listening to YouTube video tutorials for over 600 hours. I turned my first commission in 2014, and became a full time self-employed Woodturner in 2018. I’m now building a reputation as a woodturning artist.
I set up this YouTube channel to share my experiences in woodturning, and to challenge the perceptions of what people with disabilities can achieve. My goal is to inspire others by demonstrating that anything is possible, and to show the world that having a disability isn’t the end, it’s just a new beginning.”
