Sandra AdamsLearn to Turn

With Sandra Adams, Registered Professional Turner

Sandra has been turning since 1998 when she set up her workshop at her home in Brayford after completing a 3yr course studying Art & 3D design.

Becoming a member of North Devon Woodturners soon followed finding inspiration and friendship along the way. She was accepted on the Register of Professional Turners in 2013 whilst also being awarded Silver in the Craft & Design Magazine Selected awards. She has exhibited at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen (Bovey Tracey) and supplies galleries throughout the UK.

Tuition Beginners
There is always so much to learn when taking your first steps into turning and this should be an enjoyable and exciting experience. Most importantly we will cover safety, become familiar with the lathe, tools and how to sharpen them. Try different woods and discuss which is more suitable for different types of work.

Tuition Improver
For the turner who wishes to improve knowledge already gained and to take their turning further and explore colouring, texturing and the procedures for turning hollow forms.
