Product Description

New for 2020

Learn how to add a decorative touch to your work at our Surface Enhancement course!

Held at our store in Doncaster, this is an instructional hands-on course with our woodturning tutor, Mick Hanbury. No prior knowledge is needed on this course – it is suitable for beginners and intermediates alike.

During the course, you will learn how to add depth and intricate detail to your work by piercing and power carving using burrs. You will also have the opportunity to work with a pyrography machine to create light and dark burns that will add texture to your work.

You will be provided with 2 pieces of work made by Mick for you to practice a variety of texturing styles and techniques. Please note, no woodturning will be done during this course, other than demonstrations by our tutor. This course will teach you how to achieve stunning results for you to experiment on your own work after the course.

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 anything you wish to buy from our store on the day!
