Visiting or Staycationing in Ireland? Looking for something new to do?
If you are fed up with trying the same things during your vacations why not try a Woodturning Experience? It's something you may never again do and maybe something you didn't know existed.
You can buy Vouchers as gifts here or pick a Woodturning Experience for yourself.
Check out the listings at the end of this page!
What is a Woodturning Experience?
You can read the listings descriptions for a full description.
Basically, I show you how to turn a cylinder by yourself during the first hour. Over the next 2 hours I turn one of my Hanging Ornaments for you in 2 stages while you watch. I will explain my process as I go along and you are free to ask questions. I show you how to do the next stages by yourself and then you take that piece and the cylinder home with you.
Why can't I turn the piece myself?
It would be great if everyone could turn their own ornament but unfortunately it takes years of experience before being able to master the skill to make one of my pieces. Trust me, I know!
This Experience lets you try out a basic cylinder by yourself and then you get to sand, colour, seal, wax embellish and finish off a piece that I turn for you. The Ornament colours are up to you!
You leave with both pieces at the end and hopefully some great memories too!
Feel free to take photos and videos of yourselves.
Colouring the pieces
It is always fun to see how people approach the colouring and how they choose their colours and why they choose them. I have done many of these experiences and I've hosted many different people from all walks of life.
If you are lucky enough to make it to Ireland for your vacation maybe you would like to try out one of my Airbnb Experiences. This is a 2hr version though and is just the Ornament Making part.
Note: Airbnb take 20% service charge though so if you want to support an Artist, please come to me direct.
I list almost the same Experience here on this site but it includes the cylinder turning and is 3 Hrs long. Many people like to support Artists by buying from them directly and this is always appreciated.
I like to keep a small table display of my products at the front of the house for this reason. The prices I charge are cheaper than buying them in the shops I supply and if you buy a lot from me I may even offer you a deal!
Paying Cash on the day of your experience gives you the best rate, Credit Card payment means fees are added.
