Basic and Intermediate Woodturning course.
Full day courses can be taken at any mutually convenient time of week.
Dependant on experience, the course will comprise of basic skills required with bowl making for example or for the more experienced we can look at artistic hollow form work etc.
Either way, you will get the 1 to 1 tuition from a registered Assosiation of Woodturners of Great Britain Tutor throughout the day and I would expect to finish a minimum of 2 basic pieces or 1 more advanced piece for you to take home and treasure.
Sensible clothing is essential and a short safety briefing will take place before we start.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Included in your day will be all the materials and safety equipment required.
Lunch will be provided and gives us chance to reflect.
Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and is essential as taking breaks from the lathe is required to maintain focus and safe practice.
Full insurance in also in place.
6½ hours (9:00am to 3:30pm)
