Cheshire & North Wales Woodturners Association was formed in 1987 and is an Associate member of the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain. Amongst other aims, our constitution seeks to foster a greater awareness of and to promote the art of Woodturning. We as a club hold public demonstrations and exhibitions. Our present membership is now over 40 and the number of people attending our monthly meetings in Soughton averages 30.

Woodturning is a form of woodworking that is used to create wooden objects on a lathe. Woodturning differs from most other forms of woodworking in that the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it. Many intricate shapes and designs can be made by turning wood as you can see on our Gallery pages. Or come to one of our club meetings – at no charge – where you will be made most welcome.

We meet on the fourth Thursday of the month from 7pm until 10pm, where we usually have a professional demonstrator showing us a particular skill or technique. We sometimes hold “Hands On” evenings where club members demonstrate and try to assist new members with their woodturning skills. Have a look at our Diary page for our schedule of activities. Check out our Find Us page for full details of how to get to one of our meetings.

Emma Cook (aka ‘The Tiny Turner’) treated 32 members to an excellent demonstration last night.

She created a hanging Christmas bauble, consisting of a hand blown glass sphere containing many small LED’s in various colours and a turned top and bottom finial.

Look for a detailed description of her demo on our website shortly.

The bad news : Our meeting on May 23rd has been cancelled because the Sychdyn Hall is needed for the European Parliament Elections.

The good news : the demonstration by Emma Cook (The Tiny Turner) has been re-scheduled for the following week - Thursday 30th May at the normal venue and time.

Hope you can all make it.
