John Palmer with rhythm dancer doll About Woodspinners
John Palmer trained as a woodworker and having obtained a C.G.L.I. Advanced Certificate in purpose-made joinery with distinction and a Certificate in Education began a career teaching Design Technology.

His interest in art and design led to the foundation of Paraphernalia Puppets in 1982, based in Stafford but working in all parts of the country along with his wife. It continued for twenty years. The puppets, props, fit-ups and staging were the work of John and his immediate family, three of whom now work in the advertising, film and television industry. In 2002 John decided that the time had come to step down as one of Britain's foremost puppet entertainers and settle down with his first love... wood.
