About the Course

Woodturning Experience Days for beginners - Come and spend a day turning your first bowl

£130 per day, per person.


At your convenience. The Studio operates seven days a week and we will work to suit your availability. Please get in touch to book your day.


The full experience day is from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm, with a break for lunch.




We are all different and work at different speeds, but typically in half a day you can expect to finish a small bowl for your peanuts, and a small bowl and a bigger bowl in a whole day.


Children over the age of 14 are welcome but anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. While we love our dogs, Millie and Milo are very jealous of their Studio so no guest dogs please (Or cats... M & M).


There are a maximum of two participants on the day. If you wish to bring a friend to watch you are most welcome, but please let me know in advance.


Please wear clothes and footwear that you won't mind getting covered in shavings and you can be comfortable standing in all day. No open-toed sandals or flip flops please.


Please contact me to book.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?


You will be supplied with appropriate safety gear on the day. The timber for your first bowls is included - all locally sourced from responsible accredited suppliers.


Please bring your own packed lunch on the day. There is tea and coffee available all day included in the price.


We have off road parking for you in the yard. Just drive in and find a suitable spot.

Want to review this course?

I spent the day wood turning with Stephen, in the morning spun a small bowl and in the afternoon a larger bowl.
Stephen has years of experience as is willing to share his skills. The studio is fantastic, lots of interesting looking wood, tools and projects. He was good at demonstrating a technique and the allowing me to do it on my own.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day look forward to my next bowl.
