Jules Tattersall was born in Knutsford, England in 1955. He was educated at Holyhead County Secondary School and then at North Staffordshire Polytechnic, where he studied Social Geography. After leaving college in 1978, he travelled widely, pursuing many varied occupations.


He began woodturning in 1984 while living in Australia and was influenced by the quality and style of work produced by contemporary Australian turners. In 1987 he returned to the UK where he now lives and works in Anglesey.

Jules Tattersall strives to produce work of which the form, texture and overall balance may be at one stimulating yet soothing. He enjoys simple shapes, and, where appropriate, uses natural features and various techniques to give each piece its visual and tactile character.

He also enjoys limited production runs of certain items, as he feels that this helps to create a fluent economic style of working.

Jules' work has been featured in various publications, including Elle Decoration, Homes and Gardens, Country Homes and Interiors, Country Living and BBC Homes and Antiques together with a number of books on contemporary turned wood design, such as British Craftsmanship In Wood and Woodturning Masterclass.
