If you’ve ever wondered what woodturning is all about, then here’s your chance to pop along and discover more about this wonderful craft.
Fancy having a go yourself? Well, you are certainly welcome to do so, under the expert eye and guidance of some of our senior and expert members. The hall will be set up with a number of lathes, and there’s usually a pyrography table too, so there’s ample opportunity to see demonstrations or have a “turn”. Children are welcome, provided they are accompanied by an adult, and can even have a go themselves with parental consent.
The Ely Guild of Woodturners is hosting its annual “Woodturning Hands-on Day” on Saturday 21 April from 10am till 4pm at the Little Thetford Village Hall, CB6 3HG. Entry is free, and there are plenty of refreshments on offer.
The event has been open to the public since 2013. It’s a fantastic way to showcase woodturning and it is, indeed, “hands-on”. One year, a little boy was so happy with the garden dibber he’d produced that he dragged his grandad back later that afternoon to show him where he’d made it!
So do come along and see what lovely things can be turned from wood!
