Pole Lathe Bowl Turning - Your First Bowl

Very informative and enjoyable with close attention to everyone's individual needs.
Very hot day and so very hard work but very pleasing (and surprising) to end up with a bowl which just needed final finishing.

Pole Lathe Bowl Turning - Your First Bowl

Had a fabulous day in the woods pole lathe bowl turning. The tutoring was excellent.
The equipment was first rate - it was the first time I had turned on a pole lathe so it was a steep learning curve made much easier by Adrian's guidance and support.
Great company of fellow turners and as usual the lunch was lovely and the setting at Greenwood Days was perfect.
I love my finished bowl and its bumps, ridges and imperfections make it unique!
I'd highly recommend this experience.

I had a brilliant day learning how to turn and carve the wooden bowl and will definitely build on the skills. I'm already looking forward to attending more courses!

Ade is an excellent teacher. I learnt a lot during the day and always felt confident that he would guide me through making my first bowl. It is very much a first attempt and I can see how it could be improved but I am delighted with what I have achieved. I certainly recommend Ade's course.

Thanks Adrian, Greenwood Days and the beautiful and forgiving wood of the Alder. Great course, great venue and great teacher. What else would you want to do on hottest day in July?

Had been to Greenwood Days to do a chair making course and so had used a pole lathe before. When I saw the bowl turning course I was keen to try that.
It proved an excellent decision. Super equipment, very patient teaching and stunning demonstrations. Came home with my own bowl (of which I'm very proud) but would be keen to improve my skills.

Simply excellent. Adrian consistently delivers a quality experience. It was a long tiring day for me but the enjoyment of coming home with a completed bowl, mixing with like minded people and the pleasant expert guidance of Adrian made it a very rewarding experience that I shall be repeating.

The course ran at a nice relaxed pace and Adrian was a calm and knowledgeable teacher. We all completed bowls, despite concerns that we wouldn't complete them. We did so comfortably. An excellent course that i would highly recommend.

I really enjoyed making my first turned bowl with the excellent tuition provided by Ade. Every aspect of the course is well organised with good equipment, well paced tuition and interesting semi-prepared materials to work with. Ade is clearly experienced at working with diverse groups of people and was always available to assist when help was needed. Thanks for providing a great experience Ade!

Who would have thought that a complete novice on any form of lathe would turn out a bowl in one day? I was uncertain, but with Ade's very clear step by step tuition, plus a bit of help now and then, I managed a bowl. I'm only sad that we didn't have a little more time, but the course has left me wanting to try again. Most importantly, the course was great fun and Ade is a very good humoured teacher.

My bowl is now drying with its shavings in a paper bag on my wood store.
The course was brilliant. Relaxed, informative and productive. I came away with the knowledge to do it again a.s.a.p., and the first bowl I’ve turned of which I am so proud of, thanks to you Ade. Such a pleasure to meet you.

What a revelation! Having done 'electric' lathe wood turning before I found Ade's course inspirational, the feel and control you can achieve between your own foot power and the tool on the green timber is great. Ade's wonderful tuition and humour throughout together with the 'soupberb' lunch all made for a excellent day.

What fantastic course...
To be able to start with half a log and turn it into a useful bowl in a few hours and without any pressure was very satisfying.
Adrian knows his craft and is willing to share his vast knowledge and help you along the way.
I thought I might struggle with the treadling versus my old plumbers knees but there are plenty of breaks and a filling lunch.
I'd recommend to anyone.

Adrian was extremely patient with putting my mistakes right. Willing to share his skill and knowledge. The food was wonderful and well needed to keep the lathe going. Thank you for a wonderful day.

A totally captivating day, ending with a great sense of satisfaction and a spoon I will treasure. Adrian is an excellent and patient teacher who made sure everyone on the course received his attention and encouragement. The setting is beautiful and the food delicious - I would recommend the course to everyone, simply for the pleasure of doing it.

An Introduction to Spoon Carving

An excellent thoroughly enjoyable course! Very clear guidance, flexible timing with plenty of opportunity for individual attention and questions. Everyone was able to produce a spoon. Lunch was delicious and included home made soup, bread, cheese. Thank you Ade - I'll be back - maybe for a bowl turning session next!

An Introduction to Spoon Carving

A fantastic day spent with a lovely bunch of people in beautiful surroundings, with delicious home-cooked food. Ade is a fantastic teacher, with a huge amount of patience (even for lefties!). It was fascinating to get to understand the process of carving and to watch an expert do it. The course content was ideal and it was great to come away from the day with an actual spoon.
Thanks Ade!
