About Us

About MSWA

 

We are a club with a membership of approximately 30 members practising and interested in the art and craft of woodturning.

 

Regular meetings are held on the first Friday of every month at Etching Hill Village Hall. Meetings start at 7:00pm.

 

The club is equipped with its own lathe and video system, so that everyone can clearly see the turning process.

 

The club is fully insured through the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain (AWGB), to whom we are affiliated.

 

Meetings usually take the form of a demonstration, most often by a professional woodturner, but sometimes by one of the more experienced club members. The opportunity exists for questions to the demonstrators, but in addition with the spirit of cameraderie that exists among members, help and advice for those who are new to the craft can always be obtained from the more experienced turners.

 

There is no need for you to have your own lathe, or be a practicing woodturner. You are still welcome if you just want to learn more about the craft of woodturning in a friendly environment.
