Our Lathe Workshop is housed in a separate building to the Sales Counter and is equipped with lathes and has been home to a very successful Woodturning Club for 25 years. The Woodturning Club and assosciated Membership was discontinued from January 2018 the but the Lathe Workshop will be be open twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays only between 9.00 a.m. and 12 noon for anyone interested in Woodturning. As there is no longer a Membership scheme, we request an admission fee of £2.00 per visit (tea/coffee included) and all persons should sign in upon arrival.
Saturday mornings are fairly relaxed and informal and seasoned woodturners Roy Boulton and Allen Atkins, as well as other turners, will normally demonstrate skills on the lathe as well as giving advice to all beginners. Tony and Barry are also on hand in the Salesroom to give further guidance and recommendations as required.
We welcome persons of all ages (over 18 years of age for insurance purposes) and capabilities, from the absolute novice to the seasoned turner and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.
If you have any questions you would like to ask, please do so and we will be happy to help.
