Isle of Mull Wood Turners at Craignure Village Hall
Isle of Mull Wood Turners is open to anyone, whatever level of woodturning experience or interest in the craft, and is fully constituted, with affiliation to the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain.
Our aim is to foster a greater awareness of the Wood turners' Art and Craft amongst both wood turners and the general public; and to provide a forum to encourage communication and an exchange of views amongst local woodturning enthusiasts. Further; we aim to arrange meetings and exhibitions that will encourage wood turners to aim for high quality turning, and we aim to offer training to all with the involvement of young, disadvantaged and socially excluded people.
We have a dedicated workshop at Craignure Village Hall; complete with four lathes and associated machinery and tools. The workshop is available for the use of all members. We meet on alternate Sunday afternoons and hold beginner training sessions on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings.
We have an ever increasing supply of timber. This is mostly sourced from the island (through gifts of fallen trees) but we are always looking for more!
