This course is aimed at people who already have a lathe or access to a lathe, and who have some experience in bowl turning. Over the weekend, we will focus on improving turning techniques, looking at any new aspects of turning that you would like to explore.

We will also spend a day learning how to forge different types of hook tools, how to grind them, and how to sharpen them to a mirror finish.


Breakfast, lunch, tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the course fee, the evening meal is not included as some people may not be staying on site overnight. For the evening meal, everyone who is staying in the woods is welcome to put some money into a kitty and we will cook communally and enjoy our meals together.
