Let us introduce you to a different and absorbing new skill working with craftsman’s tools! In this one day course and without any previous experience you will make a small beautifully finished wooden bowl you can be proud of
Our courses will be tutored by Terry Vaughan, a turner of long experience who regularly teaches individuals at his own studio in north London. He is a real enthusiast for bowl-making and you can see some of his work on his website, where he also offers lots of information about woodturning. Our bowl-making classes are suitable for complete beginners. We take a maximum of ten people per session. You will be working in pairs, one supporting the other, taking turns to complete each stage in the production of your own bowl. Terry demonstrates the method before each step, then you work at your own pace with his guidance and supervision.

You will be amazed at what you can do in five hours even if you have never handled woodworking tools before. Having shaped your bowl inside and out the colour and lustre of the chosen wood are brought out by high-speed but traditional finishing techniques. At the end of a busy and enjoyable day, you will have made something of form and beauty.

From 28th July 2018, the day will begin at 10:30 and finish by 4pm. It is best to bring a packed lunch (as we don't have an official lunch break) and to wear clothes that wood chips won’t cling to or get inside. Long hair will need to be tied back. We have run more than 40 of these courses with many very positive reviews as you will see!

Funds raised from this course support The Camden Town Shed which is a charity targeting social isolation in older age groups, please see (
