2023 Wood Turning Classes

The Guild Guild will run some woodturning for beginners' classes in 2023
and is seeking interest.  The format will be similar to that described below.

The class runs on Saturday and Sunday on two consecutive weekends (a total of four days), from 10am until 4pm, and will be held at Naenae MENZ Shed.  Due to various factors, numbers are very limited so get in quick once we send details of the next course.

There will be more classes later in the year, dates and venue to follow.

The classes follow the NAW Level 1 introduction to woodturning syllabus where each student is required to complete a set task which takes approximately 2 hours. Typical Tasks include:

•    Lathe use and safety
•    Turning a small Bowl
•    Turning a Honey Dipper


More detail will be provided with the course notes.

We offer a discount to Guild members but if you're not already a member, you can join for just $60 per year.
The full cost of the course is $240 but if you join the Guild at the same time, your total cost will be $220 for both the course & GWW membership.

The Guild will provide the lathes, tools, materials and training.  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.
