Not running yet, I will announce opening dates in July
I have modified this experience to comply with social distancing. I have set up screens and cameras so as to limit any contact between us during the session. Air filtration units will be running. Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will be provided for your use during the 2 hour session.
If you are buying a Gift Voucher for someone in Ireland, please select collection option in the checkout cart and I will post your Voucher free of charge or you can collect it and pay in person.
Due to the skill level required for this tuition I have now changed it to direct booking only and won't be running any open classes. You must have a fair bit of spindle turning experience as the class is quite advanced.
Spindle Turning Tuition - Single Axis -
Single axis means the wood is held in a 4 jaw chuck and may or may not be supported by the tailstock.
Want to increase your skill level? I am offering Intermediate level woodturning, one to one - €80 for a 3 hour session. Previous experience at spindle turning is highly advised before taking this class as single axis is definitely more challenging. If in doubt about your ability please take my beginners class first.
Pay through this listing or pay me on the day at the start of the tuition
I can cater to people during the week but we will have to agree on suitable times
Classes to be confirmed in advance.

Students who have asthma or alergies to dust, please take advice first before booking a class.
