compass rose 200w    Welcome to Turning North!

This site is mainly the result of a small group of woodturners from Scotland and the North of England who decided not to be beaten by viruses and lockdowns or whatever else might be thrown at us. We hold a Zoom meeting on Monday evenings (7pm UK time) to catch up, share information and generally discuss the addiction that is Woodturning, the meetings last an hour. Any woodturner is welcome, from any club or location.

Joining us is simple!

By subscribing to the newsletter below you will get an email each week with instructions on how to register for the meeting and that is it, no strings, no catches (no woodturner likes catches!!).

Interactive Remote Demonstrations

This site also features a calendar of Interactive Remote Demonstrations, you don't need to be a member of the group to see the calendar and you don't need to be a member of the group to post events so if you are a demonstrator then let us know what you have coming up, it only takes a minute or two and you never know you might sell a few tickets to your event!!
