A beginners guide to woodturning

a trio of yots including a spinning top a ball and an ornament


I wanted to create a learning opportunity for people looking to start woodturning, but who couldn't get onto a course due to lockdown.

This is essentially the course I wish I had available to me when I started.

It is free because the information is important to have, and I don't want to create a barrier for anyone.

The price of £1 here is essentially a tip and helps with admin costs.

If you enjoy this study please consider joining me for a workshop in person when the lockdown is over or leave a review here on Craftcourses.com

What's included in the price?

This course is broken into sections. Health and safety, The tools and what they do, and tool maintenance.

There are demonstrations of each tool resulting in spindle work which could be adapted by the learner to many products and faceplate work resulting in a nice dish.

What you will need

To enjoy this course you will need a computer, tablet or mobile phone capable of showing video over the internet.
