Special Event: The History of Woodturning
WI Member: From £42.00
Non Member: From £47.00
Visit Denman and learn about the rich history of woodturning, which reaches back to ancient times. Until quite recently it remained a hand craft, in which hand-held tools cut wood spinning in a lathe. At Denman however, Charles from TouchWood Crafts will take you through the traditional method of using a pole lathe. Starting with a log he will demonstrate the whole process step-by-step, whilst discussing the people and machines that have advanced this most ancient and hands-on of techniques. A unique afternoon to be had, with lots to learn and plenty to see!
Outline of the event:
2.30 - 3.30pm Talk, Demo and Q&A
3.30pm Afternoon tea
