Woodturning for beginners: 2 day course



Learn to wood turn in a heated workshop with one to one tuition. These 2 days do not need to be taken together and often people complete day 1 and then get some practice time (and some new tools!) in and then come back to learn a bit more. Expect to cover: Day 1 Prep talk on: Health & Safety - Dust Extraction - Lathe choice - Tools - Sanding - Finishing - Timber - tool sharpening. Then let's get turning your first project. Lunch break. Finish turning a small bowl which you can take home with you. ​ Day 2 ​Pretty flexible but after a few safety reminders: If you bring your tools you can learn how to sharpen them Then you'll turn something a bit more challenging putting into practice the skills learned on day 1. ​ This course is one to one which is by far the best way to start woodturning. You can learn at your own speed without feeling under any pressure. I’ll push you a little but it’s your course at your pace. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can learn the basics. ​ My heated workshop has 2 lathes, a Hegner HDB 200XL and a VB 36 Master Bowlturner. Dust extraction out to an adjoining store with Micromesh ceiling filter. NEW! 2nd person discount. Why not bring a person you know to enjoy the day with you. Second person is discounted by 50% so you can both have a great day. Just click on the "All Bookings Option" on the top right of the bookings page. If you require accommodation I can advise when you book.
