Event description
This course will introduce the pole lathe and how it can be used for wood turning.

About this Event

On this course we will cover...

  • The history of the pole lathe and how it can be used today.
  • Choosing and preparing materials for turning.
  • Setting up a pole lathe.
  • Tools and how to use them safely.
  • Have a go at turning and making a simple item such as tool handles, a mallet or garden dibber.

This is a traditional man powered treadle lathe so attendees will need to be able to stand on one leg to operate it.

Please bring your own lunch.

Hot and cold drinks will be available for a small donation.

We will be working in our large polytunnel so please wear layers. The weather may be cold but you'll quickly warm up when using the lathe!

Any attendees from Staffordshire will kindly be requested to fill out a form to help us get funding from Staffs Community Learning Service.
