woodturning club

The club is available for anyone who has already attended  paid tuition at Woodturning Hartlepool and been deemed competent. The tuition ensures that we are confident that the member is competent and safe on the lathe.

If under any situation the member is found to be turning unsafe and potentially putting other members in harm’s way then they will be asked to take another paid session to gain more knowledge on the lathe.

The club lathe bookings will be on a 2hr bookable session based on availability to each of the lathes. My tutoring sessions and quantity of lathes used will have priority booking over any other member. If the booked session runs over then a extension on 1hr slots will have to be paid for before continuing the session paid by cash or card reader on site.
