Blackmore Vale Woodturners' Association



We are a club dedicated to promoting and developing the skill of woodturning to anyone who wishes to join us.

Responding to an increase in demand and to offer more flexibility for members, the club now meet more regularly (twice a month) on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month - doors open at 7:00pm finishing by about 10pm.  Please see the Calendar for specific dates and to see who is demonstrating. The new venue is at Hooper Hall, Lydlinch, Dorset, DT10 2JA.

We welcome new members with all levels of woodturning skill from beginners to the more experienced.

We endeavour to invite skilled demonstrators (about 5 per year - see calendar page for specific dates) and on the other workshop evenings members can practice their skills or learn new ones.  We encourage woodworking skills that are related to turning.

It is our intention to supplement the evening sessions with whole day courses for the membership as and when they can be organised.
