Why join us?
Our club prides itself on being friendly and warmly welcomes all new guests and members.
We have a wide range of experienced turners on hand to provide help and guidance and a well stocked shop to provide all you need. During physical demonstrations, we have audio and visual systems to enhance the experience and bring you closer to the action. Whilst operating online only, you get to see all the action close up in the comfort of your home.
