Chris Fisher

Chris Fisher RPT, also known as the Blind Woodturner, lost his sight 11 years ago, in a matter of weeks, due to a rare condition called Toxoplasmosis.

A massive life change for Chris, adjusting to being blind was like starting anew. Chris had to learn and teach himself how to do the basics all over again – such as making a sandwich or a cup of tea – as well as dealing with the onslaught of anxiety, hallucinations and muscle spasms that often accompany sight loss.

Nevertheless, Chris refused to give up and, after four years, decided to take up woodturning so that he could make himself a vampire stake – Chris is a huge horror film fan!
