Course Content

This will be for people who want to try woodturning with their teenage son or daughter

I will give a brief introduction to:

Safety instruction

Lathes, Tools and sharpening

Turning will be between centres

Turn a basic shaped piece to take home.


This is a basic course to show you how the tools cut wood and how shapes are formed. If you want to be more creative then the beginners, Intermediate classes or Private Tuition are better suited for you.


You will be instructed using professional tools and professional lathes.

You will be given safety gear (Visors, dust masks etc) to use during the class.

Wood will be provided and you can take your project away at the end


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

Please wear old clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting dusty and dirty.


All advice on safety must be strictly adhered to on the day.
