Ely Guild Of Woodturners – Hands On day.

The EGW is hosting its annual “woodturning hands-on day” on Saturday 18th April from 10am till 4pm at the Little Thetford Village Hall, CB6 3HG. 

If you’ve ever wondered what woodturning is all about, then here’s your chance to pop along and discover more about this wonderful craft. Entry is free! 

Fancy having a go yourself? Well, you are certainly welcome to do so, under the expert eye and guidance of some of our senior and knowledgeable members. The hall will be set up with a number of lathes, and there’s usually a pyrography table too, so there’s ample opportunity to see demonstrations or have a “turn”. Children are welcome, provided they are accompanied by an adult, and can even have a go themselves with parental consent.

The event has been open to the public since 2013. It’s a great way to showcase woodturning and it is, indeed, “hands-on”.  So do come along and see what lovely things can be turned from wood! We look forward to meeting you!
