Adam Stone woodturning Chippendale school

Weekend Woodturning

Last week we introduced the first of our summer short courses, a five-day upholstery masterclass.

This week we’re introducing a series of two-day woodturning weekends.

These fun and informative weekends will be our most accessible course to give students a first point of access into woodworking, with a focus on woodturning and round joinery.

It will be taught by Adam Stone, the school’s woodturning specialist, who is pictured above.

It’s also designed to be scalable, so that students can then apply their skills to a variety of other projects.

During the weekend, students will make a stool or plant stand, with a wooden turned top and three legs

Students will also learn how to work a lathe whilst being introduced to a wide range of different tools and techniques.

In addition, they’ll learn how to make tenons, tapered legs, sand and finish on the lathe – and, if they master those skills, they’ll also have an opportunity to turn a bowl.

Our woodturning courses will run over a number of weekends this summer:

6th – 7th July

20th – 21st July

3rd – 4th August

17th – 18th  August

Early booking is advised as each course has a maximum of only 4 students.


The fee for each short course is £300, with a £100 deposit payable to secure your place, the balance of the fees is then payable one month before the start of the course.

This covers your tuition and materials.

Details and an application form will shortly be on the website, but if you’d like to register your interest now, contact us on info@chippendale.co.uk
