Avon and Bristol Woodturners

We are a group of enthusiastic woodturners, of all abilities, who enjoy this wonderful hobby.  Started in 1989, it is one of the oldest clubs in its field. The aim of our club is to promote and enjoy woodturning.

We hold meetings every third Thursday of the month, and normally have professional woodturners demonstrating new projects and techniques.  The meetings also provide a forum for members to get to know each other, exchange ideas and form friendships.  We all learn from each other.

We have been hosting demonstrations, via Zoom recently, but have returned to live meetings now.  

Our next meeting is : 16th December 2021

We have a monthly e-newsletter we call  ‘Turnings’ and members automatically belong to the

Association of Woodturners of Great Britain (AWGB), which sends out a quarterly magazine ‘Revolutions’.

Both these publications are informative, fun and help give a sense of belonging to a thriving community.

Why not come to one of our meetings to see for yourself?  Visitors are welcome to attend up to two meetings, or Zoom sessions before joining the club.  See some of the benefits afforded  to members here. If you would like an invitation to a Zoom meeting please contact:
