The aim of the club is to share ideas and views of people with a common interest in woodturning and associated crafts. We hold demonstration evenings by club members or external professionals, and hands-on evenings when members have the opportunity to learn the basics, share ideas and try new techniques with the help of more experienced turners.
The club has nearly 50 members. Some are new to wood turning, some are very experienced. All are welcome, no experience is necessary. Come and watch, try your hand at a bit of turning, or get free advice on lathes, turning techniques, tools and equipment.
The club meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at Hatters Space, Nuneaton. We have hands-on sessions where usually 2 or sometimes 3 lathes may be running. We also have demonstrators who show different aspects of wood turning and related subjects.
We start at 6:30pm (although come earlier to get a good seat at popular demonstrations). Tea and biscuits are provided in the interval. We finish at 9:30pm.
Cost is £4 per night (first visit is free).
The club is affiliated to the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain.
The club has received grants from the National Lottery Fund and Warwickshire County Council for tools and equipment.
All charity donations go to support the Air Ambulance.
