David Routledge will be hosting another Evening ‘Hands on’ on the first Thursday of the month starting in October. 5pm to 9pm charge £1.
CHANGE OF DAY – Please note that the Wednesday evening ‘Hands on’ will now take place on the third THURSDAY evening, due to Evening classes starting in September.
Mick has been back in contact and is well enough to join us on the 9th of August.
Our standing, Simon Hope, will be re-booked for some time in 2018.
Due to unfortunate circumstances, our planned demonstrator for August, Mick Hanberry, has had to pull out.
But it’s with great pleasure I can announce that Simon Hope has offered to stand-in.
As usual, the demonstration will start at 18:30. Non members are welcome by booking with the club secretary, through our contact page.

On the 12th of May, the 27th Derby (Chaddesden) Explorer Scouts visited the club for a taster session of woodturning.
The group of 13, including leaders, received 1 to 1 tuition on how to turn a piece of timber into a garden dibber… and yes, we did have to explain what a dibber is. It was great to see young people learning the basics of wood turning and hopefully we may have encouraged one or 2 to explore it further.
Thanks to all the club members who came along to support this evening.
