After 6 years of turning and teaching in Dunshaughlin Co Meath we have decided to down size the premises along with the overheads. We have moved back to home (Clonee) where it all started many years ago and are delighted to resume classes again in January 2015.
The new workshop is a little smaller than our previous one so all class sizes are now reduced. Instead of the normal 6 students per class we will now only have 3 which means the student will have a lot more mentoring than before.

Description : Your One Day Course is from 10 am to 5 pm and a light lunch is provided at 1pm.
We will cater for all levels Beginners to advanced.
What to expect form your One Day course. As a complete beginner to Woodturning you will be instructed with some basic skills and techniques to get you started. We will cover Health &Safety, basic design and finishing. The class is structured, so the wood you practise on will eventually be turned into finished items.
You will be using a Woodturning lathe, which spins the wood around while you cut and shape it to the desired shape with sharp Woodturning tools. In this class you will complete a candle stick holder, a two piece lamp, or a two piece pen. The items that you create on the day are yours to bring home.
All equipment and materials are provided, if however you have some Woodturning tools you should bring them along and you are welcome to use them. Full face visors are provided and must be worn at all times even if you have eye glasses.
