1-day Introduction Course (Group)
  • 1-day Introduction Course (Group)

    Do you want to learn something out of the ordinary?

     

    Would you like to pick up a skill that is generations-old?

     

    Are you keen to explore your creative side in wood?

     

    Are you keen to dip your toes into the vast ocean that is woodturning, without a large financial commitment?

     

    Then this is for you!

     

    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.
