Welcome to our website, we hope that you will find it useful. Our aim is to promote Woodturning whether you are a complete beginner through to a professional, everyone is welcome and their input valued.We have members from a wide area along the Border, from Dumfries, North Northumberland, the Tyne Valley, Carlisle and District.

We meet once a month in the Brampton Community Centre, Sundays are all day sessions(usually with a visiting demonstrator) or on a Thursday evening which are usually member led nights. There is a monthly competition which is open to all club members. We encourage anyone interested in becoming a member to come along and meet us. The Club has a friendly atmosphere and there is always someone available to provide advice and encouragement, Woodturning has to be fun!

Once again we had a successful Open Day at Brampton Community Centre. It was great to see people from around the North of England and Scotland in particular the clubs who participated in the club competition.


Special thanks go to Paul Hannaby Chairman AWGB (The Association of Woodturners of Great Britain) for his demonstration on Saturday showing useful techniques to create bowls and boxes. Then on Sunday acted as our guest judge for the inter-club competition.

Thanks go to all the members who helped setting up and clearing the show and again in particular to James Costin and Roger Foster who gave demonstrations throughout the day.

Congratulations to Northumbria Woodturners who won the inter-club competition (for the third year running).

 The next club meeting is on Thursday 22nd November at 7:00 p.m

The main event will be a Bring and Buy remember to bring all those tools and accessories to sell to make room for all the new ones you have bought at Harrogate.
