Inspirational Time at Birstall Woodturning Club

A number of people had said to me that I must visit the Birstall Woodturning Club which is based in Mirefield.  It certainly is an inspirational club.  They have 18 lathes and are very happy to teach anyone of any age how to turn wood.  One lad I meet today was the tender age of 90. That’s ninety, not nine!

The guys were engaged with all sorts of products, turning acrylic as well as wood.

The club very much promotes a hands on approach ie it’s not about watching, but doing and making something.

The club is keen to recruit new members so if you’re interested, get in touch.
