Artist Bio – Bill Walters

Bill Walters has had a lifelong love affair with woodworking and woodturning ever since he took a shop class in junior high over 65 years ago. He has built everything from a strip canoe to furniture and helped build many Habitat for Humanity homes. The enjoyment of creating something with one’s own hands from a renewable resource is a very satisfying aspect of his work. Recently, he has been experimenting making bowls and platters that are turned and finished giving the illusion of a coiled or woven object. He is a member of the Brown County Woodworkers Club, the Village Woodturners Club, and the American Association of Woodturners. Bill has taken classes at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking and has passed on his passion to his two children who do woodwork and woodturning at their homes. He and his wife, Ann, have owned homes in Brown County since 1970.
