In response to Government guidelines, and to make sure your time here is as safe as possible, there are some important things we need to make you aware of before and during your lesson. These are in addition to usual safe workshop practices.

– Your lathe, tools and PPE will be disinfected before you arrived (unless you brought your own tools and PPE);
– Keep at least 1.5 meters apart – Do not step inside the painted lines on the floor – these will be explained when you arrive;
– All instruction will be given verbally to avoid any physical contact;
– Wear your face covering at all times when indoors;
– Avoid touching anything other than those items in your workspace;
– Use the hand sanitiser before and after touching the tools or the lathe;
– Use the hand sanitiser when leaving or returning to the workshop;

If you feel uneasy about these measures, please book a remote lesson instead.

    Father and Son Beginners day

    We spent a great day with Les (with additions from Martin) to learn the basics of woodturning. He was ever watchful to prevent us making errors with clear, concise information given from the outset. We were able to turn two bowls from the high quality ash blanks provided. A thoroughly enjoyable day with lunch provided. As our confidence improves, we shall be pleased to return to take one of their other courses. We also had a brief view of the production of Hampshire Sheen materials, which have been great in finishing the bowls. Thank you both.

    I had my tuition with Martin, he was very informative and very friendly in his manner. The day was tailored around my current level of experience and I got lots of helpful and practical tips to improve my technique. I would recommend this course and will be booking again in the near future.
