2024 Training Days

As of 2024, we will aim to put on at least 5 Training Days per year subject to venue and Instructor availability.

The confirmed dates for 2024 are all Saturday’s – 17 Feb, 13 Apr, 15 Jun, 14 Sep and 16 Nov.  The booking system is now open to book on all dates above.  Please note, we never know what is round the next corner in with our health and the British weather, so all dates and instructors may be subject to change.   

All levels covered from total beginners to advanced, subjects from safety, tool control, sharpening, bowls and hollowing etc.

The Training Days are open to anyone, whether you are already a member or new to the hobby and fancy having a go.  We would of course be delighted if you then decide to join the Club as a result.

We will endeavour to have all 4 Club lathes set up and Instructors manning each one.  Unlike the Hands on Nights there won’t be an audience watching you so you can learn at your own pace and have no other distractions.

Each 1 hour session will cost you only £10, which for one to one training is a bargain.  For beginners, we would recommend booking in for a 3hr session either in the morning or the afternoon for only £30, as there is a lot to cover and hopefully you will be able to go home with whatever you end up making.  Please do not book your sessions so they span over lunch as this will reduce the number of  available 3hr slots. 

Timings for all Training Days is as follows:

Morning Sessions Afternoon Sessions
9:00 – 10:00 13:10 – 14:10
Break Break
10:10 – 11:10 14:20 – 15:20
Tea Break Tea Break
11:30 – 12:30 15:40 – 16:40

Please note whilst all our Instructors are experienced in their own right, some have certain special areas of woodturning they are particularly good at.  Depending on what you want to do, the Club may move your booking to a more suitable Instructor.

Thank you and hope to see you at one or more of our training sessions.
