Mary Ashton - Woodturner

Course Duration: 12 weeks x 2.5 hours / Most have a maximum of 6 attendees.

These are mixed ability groups and aimed at advancing your basic turning skills. Firstly attendees work through set projects, and then progress onto making items of their own choice with encouragement and guidance from myself.

The aim is for pieces to be well designed, executed and finished. All images are of students work


(for adults)

These courses are for those who:

have a basic understanding of safe work practices related to the woodturning lathe

have reached a basic level of competence in both spindle and bowl turning skills

Ideally you will have completed approximately four days of tuition for beginners in smaller group courses to achieve the entry level bullet pointed above. Those who have a natural inclination, or previous turning experience may be able to join one of these larger groups earlier.
