Having held several training posts in my army career, it was a natural progression to offer tuition in my second career as a wood turner. Deeply passionate about the craft myself, I have really enjoyed sharing this with others and giving them the opportunity to develop their own skills in this wonderful activity; it really is something anyone can try. My overriding aim is to ensure my students enjoy their experience and I therefore only offer one to one tuition which is specifically tailored to their wishes and skill level. All courses are run from my workshop in the Avon Valley approximately 13 miles North of Salisbury near the village of Enford.

Taster Sessions

I offer taster sessions for both one (or two people if coming together) for either a half or full day.  Everything is supplied including wood, tools and protective equipment and you will take home what you make. For those on a full day, a light lunch is also included of soup and fresh bread (please let me know of any special dietary requirements when booking).  Absolutely no previous experience is required, you will be shown how to use the various tools in a safe and controlled manor.

Continuation Training

For those with some previous turning experience I aim to deliver a bespoke course to fulfil your requirements, taking into account your abilities and skill level. I am happy to discuss any aspect of turning from workshop setup, equipment selection, tool sharpening to advanced techniques and everything in between.


The prices are as follows:

Full day for one person £220
Full day for two people £385

Half day for one person £110
Half day for two people £192
