They will start again, probably when the weather warms up a bit. So keep an eye on this page, and as soon as is possilbe the new dates will be published.

You can of course, come and see us at work at one of the events we will be attending. We look forward to seeing you at one of them

The pictures above and below give a brief description on how the pole lathe came into being, and what it was first used for. The volunteers use theirs (they have 2) to make small items to sell in the visitors centre and the shows they attend, they meet, as you can see, about every four weeks. This group is open to any of our volunteers to join. Some of the volunteers do spoon carving as well.
