Woodturning is the craft of using a wood 'lathe' with hand-held tools to cut a shape that is symmetrical around the axis of rotation. Through this method, our workshop leader Afshin is able to create intricate pieces of artwork which can be seen on display around our store.

Being completely self taught, Afshin has been learning and mastering his craft over the past two years and is now eager to start taking on students of his own.

Classes are expected to be starting very soon...

"I believe woodturning can be very relaxing - to be able to create and to bring life to a fallen tree, I find this extremely rewarding."
