Artistic skills on display at new Burnham-On-Sea Woodturning Club

A new club aimed at woodturning enthusiasts is being launched in Burnham-On-Sea this month.

George Foweraker and John Brewer, pictured, are starting the new Burnham-On-Sea Woodturning Club to raise the profile of the hobby locally and help people get started.

Members will be able to develop their woodturning skills and knowledge by attending monthly meetings which will feature practical, hands-on sessions.

John told "Topics to be covered will include health and safety, the use of tools and wood technology, plus how to develop creative and artistic turning."

"Our first meeting will be held on April 27th and will be opened by internationally renowned woodturner Mark Sanger, who will be demonstrating how he produces one of his signature lidded forms."

Meetings are to be held on the last Tuesday of every month at Burnham Community Hall in Berrow Road next to the swimming pool.

A meeting is scheduled to be held on the 30th of March to sign up new members to the club when newcomers will be welcome. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 14, however junior members must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

For more details, contact George on 01278 782074 or by email at or John on 01278 784105 or
