What should I wear to my woodturning class?


You’ll need long trousers and sturdy footwear, safety boots are preferred, remember you'll be on your feet a lot of the day so something comfortable.

No trainers or sandals.


Do I need to bring my own wood?

No, I will provide wood for you to turn - as well as paints, adhesives, waxes etc.

What safety equipment do I need - or do you provide it?

All safety equipment is provided. For every class there’ll be:

  • Smock

  • Visor

  • Safety glasses

  • Earplugs

  • Gloves

  • Dust masks

Are woodturning tools also provided in the classes?

All machinery and tools are provided, but if you have your own tools or PPE, you’re more than welcome to bring them along.

Can you teach people under 18?


Yes, I can teach from any age, this obviously depends upon the persons ability to hold tools and accept instructions, generally I would say from 10 years old. For these classes, I keep a ratio of 2 students to one woodturning tutor. So, if you’d like a group of 4 students under 18, I will bring in another tutor.

How much do the classes cost?


I run classes where you can come along and join in with people of a similar level and lean together, or classes for specific number of students who wish to have a more one to one style of tutering, contact me for available dates.
