Event Details

Pole lathe greenwood turning is my passion.

My enthusiasm for this ancient craft began many years ago when I first came across ‘bodging’ – the traditional craft of greenwood turning. Bodging was developed in medieval times and later used for creating fine furniture including the classic Windsor chair.More recently I have broadened my interests and now create my own style of greenwood furniture as well as traditionally crafted wooden household utensils.

Participants will learn the basics of pole-lathe turning.

They can make a simple mallet handle, spurtle or a set of stools.

4 x hours / $150 includes festival day ticket.

  • Wear comfortable clothes & enclosed shoes.
  • Participants must be over 16 years.
