Product Description

Pen Turning Course

Read about the safety precautions we’ve put in place for our Courses.

Important: if you or anyone in your household has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough, even if it’s mild, you should stay at home.

Learn a new skill or develop an existing one at Turners Retreat!

Held at our store in Doncaster, this is a one-day hands on course with our pen turning tutor, Mick Hanbury. No prior knowledge is needed on this course but having done some woodturning is an advantage.

If you would like to try turning for the first time, we recommend participating in the Woodturning Course before the Pen Turning course, as it will be more beneficial to your learning and progression.

The course covers tool and material selection, kit styles, setting out and drilling, mandrel and bushing systems right through to presentation of your finished pen or pencil. Normally, you would make a matched pen and pencil set in the morning and a more advanced, pen, rollerball or fountain after lunch.

Our facilities include all personal safety protection and our fully insured workshop is equipped with a powerful, high efficiency dust extraction system. All materials required for the course are included.

To top off this excellent course, you will also receive a 10% discount off selected products you wish to buy from our store on the day!

What you need to bring
• Your desire to learn!
• Face covering and gloves
• Your own lunch and refreshments
• Bank card or contactless method to make payments

We also advise that you wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and clothes you don’t mend getting a bit dusty. Please note, woodturning smocks will not be provided during this time but you are welcome to bring your own if you have one.

Although it is unlikely that COVID-19 can be transmitted through food or food packaging, as a precaution, we will not be providing lunch or refreshments until further notice. No hot drinks will be provided but bottled water will be available. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

Times
The day runs from 10am to 4pm with a break in the middle for lunch. We ask that you try to arrive between 9:30am - 9:45am to familiarise yourself with the safety precautions in-store, meet the other students and have an initial chat with your tutor before the course begins.

Parking
Free on-site parking is available.

Book your place
In order to ensure a high ratio of student/mentor time, our Pen Turning courses are limited to a maximum of three students, ensuring each student has enough personal space and receives the maximum help and assistance necessary. Places are sold on a first come, first served basis. We advise that you book early to avoid disappointment!

Our Pen Turning Course dates are all shown above. There are options to secure your place with a £20 deposit or pay the full amount of £125 upfront. If you opt to pay a deposit, the remaining balance of the course will be due on the day of the event.

Important: if you are feeling unwell, we would appreciate it if you could postpone visiting us until you are feeling better. To reschedule a booking, please call us on 01302 744344.
