Ely Guild of Woodturners holds its open day on Saturday, offering the public the chance to try their hand at the art.

The event takes place at Little Thetford Village Hall from 10am-5pm. Admission is free. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.

Ely Guild of Woodturners was formed in 1988 to provide a place for established woodturners and beginners alike to meet, learn and improve their skills.
