Learn to Turn: Full Day Course (10.00am - 4.00pm)
Come and join me on a full-day woodturning lesson (10.00am until 4.00pm) held in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.
This one-day course is designed for the beginner woodturner just finding their feet. Maybe you have never picked up a chisel before; or perhaps you've had a dabble on your own, but have lost your way a bit? Or alternatively you might just want to scrub up on your turning and sharpening skills. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, then this is the type of course you need to be looking at!
All tools and timber are provided, BUT if you own any tools and want me to have a look at them, I encourage you to bring them along. However, please note that it will be a very busy day, and although I am happy to help sharpen some tools up for you to use at home, I won't have time to sort out a box-full!
The course will begin promptly at 10.00am, so please make sure you are there in good time to settle in. The order of the day is, briefly, as follows:
- Health & Safety in the workshop
- An explanation into a basic set of tools
- Choosing and undertaking your chosen spindle turning project (there are 2 to choose from)
- An introduction to sharpening tools freehand
- Turning a small bowl - THIS PROJECT MAY NOT BE FINISHED BY THE END OF THE DAY
The course will be quite an intensive with lots to learn so it will be quite quickly-paced, so feel free to bring along a notepad for jotting things down.
The course is limited to 3 people maximum to allow you the highest level of input from myself (it will only run with 2 people as a minimum).
We will have a tea/coffee break in the morning and the afternoon, with a half hour lunch break in the middle of the day - although you can take as many additional comfort breaks as you wish!!
Lunch will be provided and is part of the cost of your course. You will be contacted the week prior to the start of the course to find out any dietary requirements you might have.
If you opt to cancel the course, please give two calendar weeks notice to allow me to try to replace your spot. Any cancellations (with the exception of severe circumstances involving either yourself of an immediate family member) within the two-week period prior to the course will incur a fee of £50.00 which will be deducted from the course fee paid.
The course will only run with a minimum of 2 attendees. If this is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the course. Should this happen, we will give you the option of moving your course to another available date within a 12 month period; but if this is absolutely not feasible you are entitiled to a full refund of the cost paid towards the course.
Places are first come, first served!

I look forward to seeing you!!
