Your safety is my safety.

Learn wood turning basics on a 1 or 2 day beginners course.

Day 1;

Safety talk to cover; 

Health & Safety - Dust Extraction - Lathe choice - Tools - Sanding - Finishing - Timber - tool sharpening.

Let's get turning your first project.


Turn a small bowl which you can take home with you.

All timber and health & safety equipment supplied.

Includes lunch, tea & coffee whenever you need a break.

Day 2;

Pretty flexible but you'll turn something a bit more challenging putting into practice

the skills learned on day 1.

1 day course     £140.00

2 day course.   £260.00

(The 2 days don’t have to be taken together).


This course is one to one (unless you are taking advantage of the second person discount) which is by far the best way to start woodturning. You can learn at your own speed without feeling under any pressure. I’ll push you a little but it’s your course at your pace. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can learn the basics.

My heated workshop has 2 lathes, a Hegner HDB 200XL and a VB 36 Master Bowlturner. Dust extraction out to an adjoining store with Micromesh ceiling filter.

If you require accommodation I can advise when you book.

NEW! 2nd person discount. Why not bring a friend or family member to enjoy the day with you. Second person is discounted by 50% so you can both enjoy learning the craft.
