November 2020 Notice: Due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 restrictions and Lockdowns I would ask that people pause before buying gift vouchers for tuition. It might not be fair to fork out the money as a gift and then the receiver is unable to use it due to restrictions. You can contact me in December to discuss if you'd like, maybe things will be different then. It is possible that January & February might have the same restrictions as November. It is entirely up to you whether you proceed or not. I am still selling gift vouchers to people at the moment but they are doing so fully aware of potential delays.
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.
Private tuition - one to one lessons
Want to learn how to turn? Gift Voucher available for a really special experience. I am offering private one to one sessions for students of all abilities, €80 for a 3 hour session.
Tuition is arranged on a request basis so get in touch with times you can manage and we can arrange a class. Ideal for people with busy schedules.
Pay through this listing
Students can bring their own requests but here's a list of topics I can give a brief introduction to:
Wood drying and selection
Lathes, Tools and sharpening
Turning will be between centres or in a 4 jaw chuck depending on your ability.
You can take your project piece home.
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.
