2021-2022 Wood Turning Courses
Full / No current 

The Guild advertised 2 wood turning courses, an intensive course over 2 weekends, (Course #1) and the same course over a number of months (Course #2).

The response to the courses was good and both courses ended up fully booked.

The Guild will hold further courses and continues to take queries about availability, when we have enough interest we will schedule another course.

For reference, both had the same syllabus and will follow the National Association of Woodworkers Level 1 syllabus.

They are a project based course where each student is required to complete a set task which takes approximately 2 hours. Each student is asked to keep a log of their completed tasks and once they have completed all the Level 1 tasks they are eligible to start Level 2 training.

Typical Tasks include:

  • Lathe use and safety

  • Turning a small Bowl

  • Turning a Honey Dipper

More detail will be provided with the course notes.


Both courses offered a 50% discount to Guild members.

Not a Guild member?, anyone who has an interest in woodworking can become a Guild member, the annual membership fee is $60

If you had taken up the offer and join the Guild then your total cost will be $220 for course & membership.

The Guild will provide the training, the lathes & tools used, the wood used and any works you create will  be yours to keep.

To enquire about future courses, please contact the Guild using the form at the bottom of this page.
