Having successfully completed the AWGB Approved Trainer course and assessment I now deliver training in my own well equipped workshop just outside of Chesterfield.


Courses are tailored to suit your requirements and paced according to your level of progress, after all we all learn at different speeds and in different ways. 


Training for absolute beginners is always delivered on a one-to-one basis as I need to give you my full and undivided attention. Ordinarily for students who have mastered the basics of tool control I can offer two-to-one but due to Covid-19 considerations, two-to-one is only available to those from the same household or 'Bubble'. 


In a 'normal'  world, I can also provide local one to one training in your own workshop helping you to get the most from your own lathe and turning tools, however due to Covid-19 considerations this is not currently an option, hopefully this will return in due course.


Please contact meto discuss your requirements as all training is tailored meet  your requirements. Beginners training is always one to one, I can accommodate two more experienced students from the same household or 'Bubble'. Training on a basis of ¬£20 per hour, ¬£75 for a half day (4 hours) or ¬£150 for a full day 9 to 5 , a 25% discount will be applied for two students



Covid-19 measures


I have invested in making the workshop Covid-19 safe, measures including additional PPE, safety screens, dedicated tools and workshop space. All students will be presented with a detailed risk assessment covering the risks and preventative measures in place particularly in relation to Covid-19 in advance of confirming the booking.  On the day, the student will be required to complete a detailed 'track and trace' form including a declaration of personal health as well as an acceptance of adequacies of the measures I have put in place as detailed in the risk assessment.


‚ÄčOrdinarily, a light lunch is provided on the full day course. However due to the Covid-19 situation, it is not practical for us to cater so students will be required to bring their own lunch and snacks. Bottled water will be available throughout the day.


These measures are in place to ensure our mutual safety in these strange and challenging times; I hope you appreciate the neccesity of these steps
