Events Programme


2017 calendar – please see the event diary below.

At most meetings we have –

    • A free video/dvd library which contains well known titles on woodturning.
    • Either a woodturning sundries sale (abrasives, finishes etc) or a wood sale (bowl and spindle blanks).
    • A bi-monthly challenge for novice turners designed to assist and improve their woodturning skills by offering constructive feedback
    • Free tea/coffee and biscuits at the mid session break, where members can catch up with all the gossip.
    • A raffle.

Membership is £26 for 2017 (Jan to Dec) and is pro rata’d for people joining during the year.
