A two day course at Andy's fully equipped workshop will give you the opportunity to work with an experienced professional woodturner and teacher and get a great insight into this lovely craft.

Two days will give us time to get a good knowledge of the basics such as sharpening and then plenty of time to put these basics to use.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials are provided, tea, coffee and a home made light lunch is also laid on, all safety equipment is also there but if you have your own tools, smocks, masks etc and would like to use your own, please feel free.

I am taking the course as a series of half days, with practice in between, and finding it really helpful. Andy is generous with his extensive knowledge and passion for wood and is flexible to suit one's needs. Andy is also an expert on sharpening which is a fundamental building block for good turning. I am thoroughly enjoying learning the craft and I strongly recommend this course.

I had an amazing couple of days at Andy's Woodworking. Covered loads of topics including choice of tools, sharpening methods, workpiece design and production approach. Really good hands-on learning and the opportunity to make something unique.
