for practical dads
If your father doesn’t need more things why not give him a memorable experience? If you’re local to Reading choose a date (sometime in the future obviously) and book either a 2 hour taster session or a whole day of beginner’s wood turning. You can even come with him and create some wonderful memories are well as wooden items.
