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.
