Teaching/Learn to Turn

Learn the craft of woodturning from an internationally respected tutor, author & demonstrator based in Norfolk with an infinite understanding of the craft. One to one tuition is in my opinion the best approach for learning this absorbing craft, two students can be accommodated if required. I teach in a well equipped and fully insured workshop the art/craft of woodturning. I offer tuition to the absolute beginner, relative new comers, or even the more experienced turner wishing to improve their skills and understanding of particular specialist techniques and projects.

At the end of a course you will leave having grown in confidence and understanding with a  a good foundation to build upon in your own workshop.

All Courses run from 09:30-16:30hrs in my private well equipped workshop close to the heart of The Norfolk Broads. All materials, equipment and  lunch are supplied.
Students with their own tools are encouraged to bring them along so we can discuss any grinding issues that they may have and their future tool selection.

Beginners course/introduction:  £150 per day. Two days £300.
This is aimed at those who have never turned or have just started to turn and require instruction to help develop or improve their basic understanding of the craft of turning. One or two days can be arranged,two days is recommended.

I always recommend that beginners take an introduction course when new to wood turning, They should  then practice their newly acquired skills before progressing to a targeted course


Targeted courses/projects:£165 per day.

  • I appreciated your patience and the humour which you injected into your teaching, which always makes things so much easier to remember, When I came home I could not wait to get started and have found that what you taught me has given me a new found confidence So many small pointers that have made such a difference, thanks again



  • Hi Nick, I would just like to say how much I enjoyed my time with you and Jane last week. It proved what I had believed for a long time, that I had a real interest in the craft, and given a bit of time and practice, I feel I should be able to produce something worth showing to you. As I said last week, I fully expect to see you again, simply because I felt at great ease in your company. Best Rergards
