Woodturning Tuition

From evening classes to bespoke training programs, we can provide whatever you require.


The day starts with a quick overview of what we intend to cover, an H&S briefing to ensure everyone stays safe, then onto the fun stuff!


Tea, coffee and water are available whenever you need a break.

Two types of training courses are available, set classes designed to cover different aspects of turning and bespoke courses built around an individual, or a group.

Courses are available to suit all skill levels, from total beginner to experienced turners wanting to refine their skills - or try a new technique.

Courses take place in a purpose built workshop, just outside Glasgow.

I’m a registered AWGB tutor and Member of the RPT - with over 15 years woodturning experience.
