Youth Training

Young Turners Training Days

To give young people who are under 22 on January 1st of the membership year the opportunity to improve their woodturning skills.

Training workshops are held at either a professional turner’s workshop, a club or training centre. The number of students at each event varies. We try to provide one trainer for each two students to ensure they are well supervised and have every opportunity to advance.

The AWGB Development Fund and the Worshipful Company of Turners (WCT) sponsor the Youth Training Programme and cover all other costs.

These courses will cover safety in the workshop, safe turning techniques, tooling, and finishing.
