One day woodturning class

(3 customer reviews)



Bowl turning and spindle turning are the two main branches of the craft of woodturning, so I offer half-day classes devoted to each. But if you would like to cover both topics in a single day, you can book this intensive one day class. You will begin the day by making a bowl, because it’s a good introduction to woodturning. Everyone loves a bowl! This part of the class is the same as my half-day bowl workshop. You will then go on to cover the basics of spindle turning. If you are ready after putting in some practice with the tools, you should be able to complete a simple project. If possible we shall give a little time to tool sharpening methods too, though not in such depth as on a separate sharpening class.

Refreshments and a light lunch are provided.

After payment, please contact me anytime to arrange the date. There is no set schedule for these classes, so just suggest some dates that would work for you.

Because there isn’t time in one day for two people to do this class, I can only offer it to one person at a time.

    I was bought a bowl making class as a gift and had a great time. Terry was clear, methodical and patient, explaining what each tool was for and how to use it, keeping safety high on the agenda. The whole experience was brilliant and I can highly recommend.

    I spent a fantastically rewarding day with Terry on the one day course. I have six months experience turning but learned more in the one day than from all the practice and Youtube so far. Terry is a great teacher – patient and clear – and with real mastery of the craft. I’d highly recommend this course whether youve turned before or are dipping a toe for the first time. Wonderful.

    What a wonderful day I had on Terry’s woodturning class. As a beginner I found his one-to-one tuition spread over seven or so hours a great way of learning the basics. I particularly appreciated being thrown in the deep end right from the start, but always under Terry’s watchful eye and expert guidance. The course was remarkably comprehensive covering the basics of bowl turning as well as spindle turning, and Terry thoughtfully answered every question I threw at him. I came away with good practical knowledge and confidence using the lathe and cutting tools, not to mention a beautiful Cherrywood bowl and two Beechwood spinning tops. Thank you Terry!
