Similar to a lot of "like minded groups" our members are a wide range of ages, backgrounds and skill levels.
This mixture helps create such a valuable resource, the older, more skilled members have the depth of experience whereas a younger member might be more up to date
with modern ways and tools. A members background can also add a lot more than just woodturning knowledge. They might have a flair for art and design or be good at teaching
others. They may be a great researcher with the ability to gather in-depth information about a particular process or challenge.
We have great organisers to help with the running of the club, arranging events such as professional turner demonstration days
and various craft fairs throughout the year on the members behalf.
We have a club shop that stocks tools and supplies, all at sensible prices. The shop will consider requests for items to be stocked and will do so depending on demand.
There is also a library with books and video that can be loaned.
Each month a competition is held, usually having a given subject, and members are encouraged to enter their work.
