Woodturning courses

Are you interested in woodturning, would you like to take part in a introductory course or would you like to refresh your skills?

The introductory course (max. 6 participants per course) is aimed at all those who have never turned before. It does not require a qualification or previous training and children aged twelve or more are admitted under the constant supervision of a responsible person.

With the help of master woodturner Paul Peeters www.paul-peeters.be & master carpenter Georges Reckinger, you will learn the basic steps of woodworking and turning with the correct operations. You will learn to use appropriate tools in complete safety, giving you free rein for your creativity.

Beginners finish the day with the basic exercises and a self-made workpiece.

For experienced woodturners who want to improve, we work on their specific questions (e.g. hollowing out vases), recognising the types of wood, how to gather and maintain a stock of wood, turning end grain, sharpening tools, etc.). It is important to come to the course with your own concept, so we can follow your approach and give you advice. Each course participant benefits from the experience of their fellow students.

The price of the courses is 250.-€ per weekend. Tools and wood for basic exercises are included, but you may also bring your own wood.

Wear an apron and safety shoes (protective cap+ puncture protection) that fit snugly. Wood chips tickle!

Bring your own lunch! We will take time to exchange ideas, watch a video and consult books to discover the work of woodturners from around the world.

The course is in German & French language (can also be translated to English).
