HANS WEISSFLOG has worked as a full-time woodturner and designer in his own studio since 1983. It was around that time that he started travelling around the world, doing demos and teaching classes for both beginners and professionals. Hans has won several awards for his designs. His son Jakob has been fortunate enough to apprentice with his father. The two currently work together, but they both have their own styles and ideas. Their studio is in Hildesheim, Germany.
