Included in this course is a basic workshop safety tour, going through what tools and equipment you will using and how to use them safely and reliably. you will then be given a tutorial on how to prepare timber stock ready to be put on the lathe for turning, tuition will then begin! 

Once you are familiar with the machine and I am confident you can competently work the machine by yourself, I will make tea and coffee, please bring your own packed lunch, you will need the energy! This is the main body of the day so will take up quite a lot of time, once you have completed the bowl, I will then talk you through how to finish it up ready for use!
