Local Upcoming Event - Valley Woodturners

There are still some spots available! If you are interested in woodturning, this is a course not to be missed! 

Learn to turn - April 5, 12 & 26 - 9:00 - 4:00 

Louis Riel High School (woodworking shop), 1655 Bearbrook Road in Blackburn Hamlet.
The club provides lathes of various sizes, all the tools and materials required.
The course includes spindle turning (beads & coves and even the skew chisel), sharpening, making a tool handle, a plate from dry wood and a bowl from green wood. We try to stress tool control thru these lessons so that the new turner has a good understanding of the process to enjoy their new passion.

A short break is scheduled around mid-day. Students and instructors are expected to bring their own lunch.

The cost is $250.00 per student which includes mandatory membership to: Valley Woodturners (the annual membership fee is $35.00). Insurance limitations requires the applicants be 18 years of age and older. Because of the very high demand course allocations are confirmed upon receipt of payment on a first come / first served basis. Theses courses sell out very, very quickly so don't delay!
