Event description

Description

(For Loughborough University students only)

Have a go at pole lathe turning!

Participants will have a chance to ‘have a go’ on a pole lathe (traditional foot powered woodworking lathe). The workshop will have six lathes for a rotation of students, and tools and devices will be provided. Participants will each turn a small item, taking around 30 minutes, to take away with them.

The tutor

Peter Wood has been making greenwood furniture for nearly 25 years. He has been running chair-making and other traditional woodland craft courses in the woodland centre he set up in The National Forest for 20 years. He teaches these crafts around the country including Rycotewood Furniture Centre, Lincoln Heritage Centre and Nottingham Trent University and is also the current pole lathe turning world champion!
