You can choose whatever you want to do on your one to one day. This is perhaps the best way to get a great foundation in woodturning if you are a newcomer or developing your skill or learning a new technique.
Maybe you want to learn bowl turning and sharpening. No problem. Or, perhaps you’d like to combine colouring and texturing. That’s no problem either. Or maybe you’d like to run over the absolute basics of bowl turning and spindle turning. You can add a second person to the day for £30.00 so long as they want to learn the same as you. This is perfect for couples or friends who want to take up the hobby together.
Whatever you choose, we can make it happen and you will go home with at least one completed item.
