Wood turning is a form of woodworking that is used to create wooden objects on a lathe. You can take a simple block of wood literally ‘turn’ into a unique piece of artwork or a useful household item. From lidded boxes to Christmas ornaments, you see the entire process from start to finish.

Visitors will be able to personalize giveaways. Wood turning induction will show you how to create beautiful shapes from lumps of wood such as Wood bracelets, Staved goblets, Bowls and Bottle stoppers
