The Ely Guild of Woodturners (EGW) is hosting its annual free ‘woodturning hands-on day’ this month (April). 

If you’ve ever wondered what woodturning is about, you can pop along to Little Thetford Village Hall on Saturday April 23 from 10am-3pm to discover more. 

The event has been open to the public since 2013 and is a great way to showcase woodturning. 

A spokesperson from EGW said: “The hall will be set up with a number of lathes so there’s ample opportunity to see demonstrations or have a ‘turn’ under the expert eye and guidance of some of our senior and knowledgeable members. 

“Children are welcome, provided they are accompanied by an adult, and can have a go themselves with parental consent.

“So do come along and see what lovely things can be turned from wood!”
