Welcome to Bodmin & District Woodturners. This page is to provide you with information that will help you get the most from your membership.
How To Join
If you would like to join please come along to one of our meetings, or contact one of the committee members by email which can be found on the contact form.
Joining fee for one year is £65.00, (Club Fee £47.00, AWGB Fee £18.00). This is Reviewed each year at the AGM.
Learn To Turn
As well as laying on a series of demonstrations and other events to instruct and entertain our members, we run what is called a Foundation Course which is based on the one which the AWGB runs. Click here for more details. As well as this, we usually run a full day hands-on master class with a professional turner. As if that is not enough, we also have a mentor scheme where you can develop your skills at your own pace with the help of an experienced turner. Items from wood provided.

Virtual Competition 2 (The Sequel!)

The club is holding a second Virtual Competition with the same entry rules as the previous one. The theme is OPEN but entries must have been produced between Nov 1st 2020 and the closing date of April 30th 2021. N.B.
