Chestnut Products – Woodturning Weekender @ Springfields Event Centre
Aug 3 @ 09:00 – Aug 4 @ 17:00

Chestnut Products is now over 25 years old and to celebrate they are having a weekender!  This will be held at ‘The Springfields Event Centre, Spalding, Lincolnshire

TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE!

One Day – £20
Two Days – £30
(Early bird prices – don’t wait too long!)

They will have four top-class woodturning demonstrators; Emma Cook, Stewart Furini, Phil Irons and Gary Lowe during the weekend to inspire, educate and entertain, showing best practice for turning, decorating and finishing.  Many of the demonstrators will be in the hall even when they’re not on stage and available to chat to and ask questions.

They want this exciting event to bring together woodturners from novice to expert to not only learn from the demonstrators but to also share their advice and stories with each other and hopefully have a few laughs too.

Come on Saturday, Sunday or bag-a-bargain and stay for the whole weekend.  Also join them on the Saturday evening for an informal meal and a few surprises!
You’ll find more details on their website 

Before the on-stage demonstrations start, during breaks and after the demos have finished there will still be lots going on, with displays and ‘up-close’ demos from local clubs and turners.  Our club has been invited to have a stand at the show, so please come along to support us.

ANNOUNCING OUR FIRST SIDE SHOW

When I first thought of holding the Woodturning Weekender my first (and only) choice of venue was Springfields in Spalding.
By chance, I was due to give a demonstration at Lincs Wolds Woodturners around the same time, so I was able to combine an exploratory visit to the venue with the demo. The recce went well and, never one to miss a chance of publicity, I announced the event to the club that evening, before we’d even booked the demonstrators!

Within half an hour the club approached me and asked if I’d like them to put on a display and demonstrations over the weekend.
So, Lincs Wolds Woodturners were the first to sign up, before the event was fully official!

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/eec04d3ac2ee6c37ff756e279/images/3e2f7966-cf36-4ba9-8f9d-d4471667f3e3.jpg

We’ve had a long and happy association with the Lincs Wolds Club so we’re delighted they will be joining us at the Weekender. Along with a display of the wonderful work they produce they will also be demonstrating different techniques and projects on the lathe. Members will be more than happy to share their knowledge and experience and will be able to offer advice and help on those niggling little questions you might have, up close and personal.

The club has a wealth of talent and a great pool of turners to call upon. They are no strangers to demonstrating either. Many members demonstrate on club nights showing their own particular speciality and as a club they are always to be seen at the Midlands Woodworking Exhibition in Newark and at many other events around the area, nearly always with a lathe running!

The club are also very active fund raisers, their chosen charity being the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance. We are proud to be supporting their Grand Draw which will be held at the Midlands Woodworking Show. I hope none of us ever need to use it but it’s good to know it’s there just in case!

You can read more about the club and their activities on their website.

I’ll be along again soon with details of the other sideshows taking place at the Weekender.

And remember, the early bird discount finishes at the end of the month.

Don’t forget!

Your ticket admission price includes:

  • All the demos on that day
  • Opportunities to chat informally with the demonstrators
  • Access to the club displays and other informal demos around the hall
  • Affordable on-site catering
  • Free parking
