Hone Your Skills With My Woodturning Tuition

At my workshop in Batcombe, I run personalised woodturning courses in Dorset.

These courses can cover whatever the student is looking to do, from the rudimentary basics of working a woodturning lathe, to more advanced turning such as hollow form techniques, finishing techniques and spindle work.

If you have a specific technique you would like to learn, feel free to message me directly and we can discuss this in advance.

Safety First

 



  • Safety is an absolute priority of mine when it comes to woodturning.
  • Safety visors or goggles must be worn at all times when the lathe is in use, and you should be wearing appropriate footwear.
  • All loose items must be secured eg, long hair, long sleeves and jewellery.
  • I will always double check that the lathe is set to the correct speed for the job and that the work piece is properly held, as well as setting the correct height and position of the tool rest.
  • If you are ever unsure of what you are expected to do, STOP.
