Woodturning Seminar, Stockport, UK
27th January
On 1st February 2008, George Moore, Vice Chairman of the Northern Federation of Woodturning Groups is holding a demonstration in carving on woodturnings at High Peak Woodturners Club, Hazel Grove, Stockport. The seminar will be held for club members but non-members are welcome with a small fee payable.
The woodturning club was established in 1991 and since then has held regular meetings for professionals and novice woodturners alike. The meeting usually consists of general woodturning advice plus demonstrations of skills and techniques used by experienced woodturners. There are also practical sessions to encourage novice woodturners. Meetings such as these give woodturners an opportunity to exchange information and communicate with other woodturners about the art and craft of woodturning.
The High Peak Woodturners Club also holds auctions for their woodturners giving them an opportunity to buy and sell their work and tools to other members. Each month they also arrange a challenging theme for creative woodturning, with items entered into a competition and a shield awarded to the overall winner.
Each woodturning club involved has their own newsletter published every two months, which features information on new and upcoming events, competitions and news from the club chairman. You can subscribe to a club near you and attend the regular seminars to gain the information and experience required to improve your woodturning skills.
The Northern Federation of Woodturning Groups and the Committee members will be meeting twice in 2008 to provide woodturning clubs across northern England and Wales with information, publicity and insurance for their groups. In the meeting they will hold their own exhibition and woodturning demonstration. Each club is entitled to send two representatives at the forthcoming committee meeting which is being held at the Botanical Gardens Club in Atherton on Sunday 17th February 2008.

  What is Creative Woodturner?

Woodturning design

Creative Woodturner is software for woodturners who want to get the most out every piece of wood. You simply draw the outline of your woodturning using the mouse, and instantly a photo-realistic 3D view appears. You can rotate the 3D view, making sure that your woodturning design looks great from all angles.
