Our two day woodturning course is a great introduction to the rewarding craft. It allows you to create beautiful and functional objects from a simple block of wood. Not only is it a fun and enjoyable activity, but learning to turn wood in a professional environment ensures that you have access to the right tools, techniques, and guidance to develop your skills effectively.
Martin and Les, both professional,turners bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to their courses. As accomplished turners, they have a deep understanding of the art of woodturning. Their experience at running woodturning courses as tutors allows them to effectively communicate and share their knowledge with others.
In addition to the technical aspects of woodturning, Martin and Les also share insights into the creative process and design principles. This approach to learning ensures you not only develop your proficiency but also gain a deeper appreciation for the art form itself.
