Book a Spindle Turning Class

(4 customer reviews)



You can enroll on a spindle turning class here. The class provides excellent value. As the only student, you will benefit from true one-to-one tuition. People booking this class usually have their own workshop, and often have tried turning before. But no previous experience is necessary for the class. During the class, you will be able to work at your own pace. You will learn and practice the correct use of spindle turning tools. We won’t aim to make any specific item, though there is usually time to complete a small project.  Light refreshments are provided.


One to one classes can be very flexible, so I don’t have a set schedule for them. They are arranged to suit you. After payment, just contact me by phone or email to suggest some dates that would work for you. You can do that immediately, or leave it till later if you wish, though if you need a specific date it is best to arrange it early.

I shall send you some information about the class, but don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about the class or the booking.

    I’ve been mainly turning bowls as a hobby for a couple of years but needed more guidance for spindle turning, especially to increase my confidence using the skew and spindle gouge. Terry is a patient and expert teacher. I found his demonstrations and explanations very helpful; I’ve left with excellent guidance and tips which should, with practice, improve my turning skills. Thanks to Terry for his help!

    A brilliant if exhausting day! As a D/T teacher, I feel quite empowered after the day and have come away with the confidence to practise at school and to demonstrate to the use of a wood lathe to the pupils. Terry has patience, knowledge and is a natural teacher; I would recommend this course unequivocally.

    Thank you Terry for a great introduction to Spindle Turning. I’ve never used a lathe before and Terry went through the different types of tools to use for different effects and then let me loose on the lathe to practice using the different chisels. Great fun and I came away with lots of new knowledge and a great piece I can use.
    Thanks again.

    Terry is an excellent and very patient teacher! I had no prior experience using a lathe and felt I had vastly improved by the end of our session. Terry tailored the session around my specific requirements and was able to offer great advice for how I can continue experimenting on the lathe.
