Colchester Woodturners

A club for woodturners who meet in Colchester, Essex.

The club welcomes visitors, other club visitors and anyone interested or wanting to find out more about woodturning to come along to our monthly meeting. 

We have fantastic demonstrations from professional woodturners, some of which are members of our club alongside hands on evenings and competitions. Our membership includes all levels of woodturners and is a great place to learn more about woodturning and overcoming woodturning obstacles.
