Monthly Meetings

Our regular meetings are held  on the last Thursday of each month (except December) starting at 7.30pm until 10.00 pm. We aim to widen the experience of members  and visitors with different techniques  and challenge all to develop their woodturning ideas and skills.

All day event

In addition to monthly meetings the club organises an annual, all day event usually at a weekend.    A professional turner is invited to demonstrate a range of techniques in a relaxed atmosphere with the club providing ‘bacon butties‘ for breakfast and a hot meal at lunchtime together with rolling tea, coffee and snacks.    Previous demonstrators at these events include Les Thorne, Mark Sanger and Nick Arnull.

Competition

A competition with a monthly theme.

Tuition

Beginners’ Tuition sessions take place in the workshop at Headway 9am until 11am on Friday mornings. These sessions are run by AWGB accredited Tutors. The club also provides full day courses for turners of all levels through the AWGB.

Show attendance

We attend shows to attract members and sell items made by members.   The funds raised help to maintain our funds, keep subscriptions low and enable the purchase of equipment.
