WWOS 2022: Stuart Batty

Stuart Batty is a third generation apprenticed woodturner with over 40 years of experience. Under the expert tutelage of his father Allan Batty, a world-renowned master spindle turner, Stuart began turning at the age of ten. By the age of 16, Stuart had become an accomplished production spindle turner and instructor and had gained wide notoriety for his technical proficiency and teaching abilities.

Stuart has taught more classes and demonstrated at more clubs and symposiums than any other woodturner in history and is recognized as one of the world’s most accomplished woodturners.

Through years of production turning and teaching hands-on woodturning classes, Stuart developed a unique style of the European push-cut technique using fewer tools and simpler grinds to totally eliminate torn grain, requiring less physical effort, and enabling rapid, repeatable cuts. Stuart has pioneered many of the techniques and terminologies that all woodturners use today such as the push-cut, pull-cut, negative rake scraping, 40/40 and bottom bowl gouge grinds.

Stuart’s work includes balustrades and newel posts in Royal and Stately British Homes and a piece in the White House Permanent Collection. He is now focused on teaching classes to help students improve their woodturning technique.

Stuart’s methodology is focused on teaching a set of universal skills which can be used to make any workpiece on the lathe. It is not focused on product, but on correct technique and process.
