          the club was founded in  1999

Do you enjoy working with wood

then our club may be for you

     Welcome to the Garden of England Wood turners.


  Over the last few months we have  had some exciting new demonstrators some not as exciting for all members, however as we have seen a lot of new members joining the club and every demo is a step forward for them and for some of the more experienced members a chance to look at other methods of turning which they might find useful in there own demos , however whatever the likes and dislikes it has been an exciting year with more to come .

 The next Demo will be by Carlyn  Lindsay, this lady turner is a very precise and accurate turner, so come along and have an exciting day it might inspire you  to make that next competition piece.

I would also like to say that we now have two professional wood turners in the club , Denis Hayer & Ed Oliver  both members are now on the

 Register of Professional turners and members of  The Worshipful company of Turners  of London. well done to both of you in this achievement.

Don’t forget to let everyone no about the club show and to come along and have a fun day lets make it the best yet.

 Well that's all for now  keep up the good work and Makin Shavins
