As a member of the Black Dog Workshop, you are entitled to unsupervised, untutored lathe time to turn what you wish. You must complete a basic competency test (you must be able to turn a simple bowl and simple spindle project) on your first visit in order to be permitted to turn unsupervised. This is a requirement of our insurance company.

If you are a new member with no turning experience, book a 1-1 day tuition course (at a 25% discount) to get the basics and we’ll be happy for you to turn.

Your Lathe Time Includes:

  • Use of a Comet II Lathe or Nova Galaxi (for an additional £5.00)
    and standard set of 6 Robert Sorby tools (you are welcome to bring your own)
  • Use of any required consumables (sanding pads and finishes) or other equipment
  • PPE and Insurance

How To Book:

  • Select a Green date in the calendar above,
  • Click on’Check Availability’,
  • On the CheckOut page, complete your details,
  • Click on ‘Request Confirmation’.

We’ll then check your requested date and time is available and send you a confirmation and link to pay, or contact you with an alternative date.
