Woodturning Courses in Berkshire
Learn to turn
Do you know someone who loves wood or is interested in woodturning? 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 beginner’s 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.

Give a lesson as a gift
If you’re buying the session as a gift and aren’t sure which dates to book then why not buy an e-voucher or gift card? This allows your recipient the flexibility to book a date that suits them.
The eco friendly cards are a real life card that can be posted to yourself or directly to your giftee.
The e-card is a great instant option which is emailed immediately to the email address you specify.
Alternatively, if you need it to arrive on a certain date you can schedule it for that date.
