Learn how to make a woodturned pen in the peaceful setting of my workshop located in the cottage garden of our home on the Cambs/Norfolk border.
Click on "Gallery & Shop", "Woodturning Tuition" to discover more about what is included in the course and other workshops too.
This half-day session can be arranged for either the morning or the afternoon. It includes refreshments throughout but not lunch.
Simon will run through some essential health & safety info and then the student will learn the basics in spindle turning before going on to create a beautiful executive fountain or ballpoint pen from a selection of woods.
This experience can also be enjoyed by 2 people - making it the perfect couples gift for Valentine's Day, birthdays & anniversaries.

1-person Pen Turning Experience
The workshop booking is valid for 1 year from the booking date – this simply means that the setting of the date for the workshop must be arranged within the validity period, however the workshop date could be outside of this validity period.
The purchaser of the workshop may cancel the workshop up to 2 weeks before the workshop date with a full refund.
Failure to attend the workshop on the day without sufficient notice will result in the workshop being cancelled and no refund will be issued.
If the participant of the workshop is unable to attend their workshop for good reason, a new workshop date must be set within 3 months of the cancellation of the original workshop booking – even if the agreed new date lies outside of the 3-month period. Failure to rebook within that period will result in the cancellation of the booking with no refund. If the participant does not attend the second amended date, the booking will be considered cancelled with no refund.
If we need to cancel a workshop at short notice for reasons beyond our control, such as illness or mechanical breakdowns, the first option is to rearrange a mutually convenient date or receive a refund. In the event of cancellation for any reason, we are unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or any other expenses that you may incur in relation to the cancelled course.
