learn to turn
Do you know someone who loves wood or is interested in wood turning? Would you like to give someone the gift of a unique experience and a new skill and maybe even come along yourself? Then woodturning sessions are for you.
I run woodturning courses in Burghfield Common, West Berkshire. Join me in my garden workshop for a 2 hour session or the whole day. I’ll teach you the basics in a fun, informal wood turning lesson and by the end you’ll have something you’ve made to take home with you. All materials and safety equipment are provided as well as refreshments throughout the day. If after reading this page you still have questions please complete the contact form. If you would like to book straight away please click here to see availability.
Always wanted to try woodturning but weren’t sure how to go about it? Come and learn the basics with Liz in a relaxed, low pressure session at her home workshop. You can choose to learn alone or bring a friend. Choose between the short and sweet 2 hour session or a more thorough day of turning.
gift vouchers available
If you’re buying the session as a gift and aren’t sure which dates to book why not buy an e-voucher or gift card? Then they can book a date that suits them.
