See Calendar page for complete list of dates.
When?      3rd Tuesday of each month
 
Where?    Probus Village Hall
 
Time?       7pm to 10pm
 
Cost?        £3.50 per session
 
These nights are for beginners/improvers.  Initially tools will be provided but in the long term it would be better if you have your own.  You need to bring in some wood and an idea of what you would like to turn.  Most importantly of all you need to have a go on the lathe.
Lucky Dip Projects
 
The Lucky Dip prize is a bottle of wine each month with a £25 Axminster voucher for the person who enters the most projects throughout the year.
 
The Lucky Dip Project  runs with a different theme each month.
(see Calendar for this year)
