TRAINING DAY BOOKING
In light of COVID-19 – All Training Days are cancelled until further notice as we are unable to operate from the Village Hall.
We had several requests for one to one training and some people being reluctant to have a go on a lathe in front of other people, we have arranged four training days in 2020, 21 Mar, 13 Jun, 12 Sept and 28 Nov, for one to one training sessions. All levels covered were covered from beginners to the advanced, subjects from tool control, sharpening, pyrography, colouring, spindle work, bowls, pens and hollowing.
The Training Days are open to anyone either already Woodturning or anyone wanting to learn a new hobby. You don’t have to be a full paid up member of the Club to take part, but we will require you to register as a Guest, which is a simple form completed on the day so we know who you are, emergency contact details and some agreements from you regarding GDPR. Ideally, we would love for you to then join our Club once bitten by the bug, but it is up to you. Please show your support by advance booking using the form below or via the hard copy form that will be available at the Club.
Timings for all Training Days are as follows:
9:00 – 10:00 – Session 1,
10:10 – 11:10 – Session 2,
11:10 – 11:30 – Tea Break,
11:30 – 12:30 – Session 3,
12:30 – 13:10 – Lunch Break
13:10 – 14:10 – Session 4,
14:20 – 15:20 – Session 5,
15:20 – 15:40 – Tea Break,
15:40 – 16:40 – Session 6.
Please note whilst all our turners are experienced in their own right, some have certain special areas of woodturning they are particulary good at. Depending on what you want to do, the Club may move your booking to a more suitable turner.
Pick the Training day(s), turner, date of the session to view available time slot(s). If the time slot has already been booked, it will be greyed out, so either chose a different time or try a different turner. Enter into the comments box what you would like do or need help with during your session(s). You are limited to a maximum of 2 hours with any one turner, but can book with other turners during the day. Due to limitations in the booking system, you must fill in your details and submit the booking for each turner you want to book with.
Once you hit submit, your booking will be sent to our booking system and you will be redirected to a thank you page which gives you the option to book with more turners. Once your booking has been confirmed Martin will check the booking and then send out an email personally to confirm each one. This is not an automated process, so please be patient. Your contact details will then be passed on to the turner who will contact you to discuss your requirements. It may be necessary to bring any materials required for any specialist projects.
If you need to cancel your booking please give at least 48 hours notice and contact us. You will need to pay on the door, £10 for each booked session. If you fail to show on the day, you will still be billed for the session(s). Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your session and leave straightaway afterwards as we don’t want spectators watching the sessions. Thank you and hope you enjoy your training sessions.

I learned a lot in the two one hour sessions I had with Stuart and Pete. One to one is far better as I don’t feel embarrassed about asking the “stupid” questions that I would on club or hands on nights. You’ll never get better value for money than this, so the take up from members was disappointing. These very experienced guys and Martin gave up their Saturday for you give them your support at the next one if possible. We have probably got the best club anywhere, so let’s keep it that way and support the events that the committee arrange for us. They always ask members if that’s what they want before arranging them, if members continue saying they do, but then don’t support them, they will obviously stop. Well done guys, it is very much appreciated by this member.
