  1. A 'hands on' practical woodturning club for everyone of all ages from all over the Yorkshire region. There is a rapidly growing junior section. Members can come to as many workshops as they like to turn, or just meet friends. The workshop is fully equipped with turning and woodworking machinery and equipment for the use of members.

    The club is usually open during the day Monday to Thursday and Saturday, and on Wednesday evening. Please check our website for times.

    Activities include the opportunity to 'turn', instruction sessions, visiting demonstrators, competitions, visits, community activities and the opportunity to take part in activities that are social, constructive and therapeutic and enjoy the comradeship of those with similar interests. There is an excellent library and social facilities for the use of members..

    The club room is fully accessible and there are disabled parking facilities by the door. Our machines can be adapted to suit the needs of people with mobility problems. Please inquire how your needs can be met if appropriate.

History

  1. Inaugurated in Birstall more than a decade ago, this is how the club got its name.
    For about six years we occupied upstairs premises near the Frontier Club at Batley.
    In February 2011 we moved to Holme Bank Mills, Mirfield where we have a large and comfortable clubroom.
    This has the advantage of being on the ground floor and with easy access.
