About the Event

A Pole Lathe is a simple piece of technolgoy that's been used for centuries to make turned items - from candlesticks and spindles to bowls and plates - using just leg power! On this weekend workshop, you'll make your own Pole Lathe to take home with you, learning new skills as you create the component parts. 

Workshop programme You'll arrive on site by 10am on each day, and be directed to our workshop. All wood and tools are provided. Each day finishes around 4pm. Camping is available for free. Please bring food with you; you are welcome to cook over the campfire. Tea and coffee is provided throughout the day - and there may also be cake!

Cancellation policy We do have to cancel events from time to time, usually for safety reasons in bad weather or when there is a weather warning. If we do have to cancel, we'll give as much notice as possible. We'll also refund the value of the booking, seek a suitable placement on a similar event or rearrange the date of the event. If you have to cancel, please tell us as far in advance as possible. If you let us know at least 21 days in advance, we'll refund your booking.
