Our Lathe Workshop/Club is housed in a separate building to the Sales Counter and is equipped with lathes for demonstrations and has been home to a very successful Woodturning Club for 25 years. From January 2018 the Club will be be open only on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month between 9.00 a.m. and 12 noon. As we have now discontinued the Membership scheme for the Club, we request an admission fee of £2.00 per visit to cover costs and tea and coffee provided and all persons should sign in upon arrival.
Saturday mornings are fairly relaxed and informal and our resident woodturners and Roy Boulton and Allen Atkins as well as other members 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.
The Club welcomes 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.
