Join Us for Open Shop Days

You’re invited to drop in at the club shop and turn with other members!

We offer Open Shop time at the club several days a month to give members the opportunity to come and turn with others. This gives members the chance to get hands-on time in an environment where there is someone available to provide assistance and offer suggestions. There are usually several members of our mentoring team available on these evenings to work with you.

We have open Shop on:

Open Turning at the SPW Club
These are all days when members can simply drop in and enjoy the camaraderie  of other turners and  get some informal mentoring. There is no need to sign up in advance unless you want to arrange to work with a specific mentor. Members are also welcome to make arrangements with another member to meet them at the club during open shop time to work on a project or a problem they are having.

You are welcome to bring in a project you are working on or you can join us in turning the items we sell at various fundraising events.  Working on fundraising projects provides valuable skill-building time for new turners as there is nothing like turning the same item several times to develop muscle memory.
