Our 1 day introductory woodturning course is designed to get you on the lathe and teach you the basics of woodturning. The course runs on advertised weekends from 10am to 5pm, or by arrangement.
The course is organised so that each stage is demonstrated first, and then guidance is offered as you proceed. The aim is to make several projects that you can finish ready to take home. There is the option to add embellishment to those pieces at the end, if desired.
