You will learn the health and safety aspects, the basics of spindle turning and, if you prove to be ‘a natural,’ there may be a chance to do a small bowl as well.

If you have a particular area of turning you would like tuition in please contact me. If I am not able to help I will endeavour to point you to another registered turner who can.
