Welcome

Lottery funded

Welcome to the official website for Staffordshire and South Cheshire Woodturners Association. We are located in Newcastle under-Lyme, Staffordshire and meet every second Thursday of the month at the Senior Citizens Centre. You are assured of a warm welcome so if you have ever thought of having a go at turning or are already turning but would like to meet others who turn — then come along and join in our monthly club activities.

22 April we welcome first timer to the club — Colwin Way. Colwin is well known for his regular articles within 'Woodturning' magazine and demonstrations / training with Axminster Tools. Colwin will give an insight into his woodturning history, along with demonstrating the use of the Skew and Bowl gouge, bowl reversing techniques, jam chucks and buffing wheels. A great introduction for those new to turning as well as many useful tips for the more experienced.

The seminar is being held at The Swift Gallery which houses a large collection of photographs spanning the age of motor racing, from the pioneers to the present day. Well worth a look in itself. Tickets for the event are £15 for members and £18 for visitors and include a hot lunch.
Please join us 09.30-4.30 for what should prove to be an enjoyable and informative day.

Tickets must be ordered/reserved in advance by contacting Adrian on 07771725462 or email : aeyres61@hotmail.com

The next club meeting will be Thursday 10th May and we welcome Peter Wood for the first time to the club. Peter is a greenwood worker and will talk about his craft while demonstrating spindle turning, the tools he uses and the chairs that he makes.
