Woodturning in Ireland, where do I go to Learn?

If you have found your way to this page then you are probably looking to learn or at least try out Woodturning in Ireland. You are probably ready to embark on a new journey of craftsmanship and creativity but don't know where to begin. It is vital that you learn properly at this stage so that you can move forward with a good foundation under you. Going off and buying equipment and Tools in a rush without first taking advice is a recipe for disaster. Join me in my Workshop in Tralee for a Woodturning Class or two and I will advise you how to start with the right gear so that you will be Turning long into the future.

I offer hands-on Woodturning workshops tailored for beginners and enthusiasts alike and I specialise in one to one or one to two Teacher to Student ratio so that you always have my full attention. If straight forward Tuition is not your thing then you can always try for a Woodturning Experience instead.

I have been Turning professionally since 2015 and I started Teaching in 2019 once I felt I had accumulated enough knowledge to pass on. You will benefit from what I've learned and taught myself over the last 9 years in business as well as learning from the mistakes I made from the mid 1990s onwards.

Can I learn to Turn by Myself?

Sure, you can but I wouldn't recommend it. Why? Because that's the way I did it and I ended up quitting for a while. I also spend hundreds of Pounds & Euros on useless Tools and Machines that made life harder for me and not easier.
