Our weekend woodturning course is taught by Adam Stone, the school’s Woodturning specialist.

This fun and informative weekend is our most accessible course to give students a first point of access into woodworking, with a focus on woodturning and round joinery.

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

They’ll also 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.

For 2020/21, our woodturning course takes place between:

21st – 22nd November 2020

27th – 28th February 2021

27th-28th March 2021
