Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Black Country Wood Turners!

We are a friendly bunch of people , who have nothing better to do with their time than to reduce otherwise perfectly fine pieces of timber to piles of shavings and sawdust on our workshop floors. Oh, yes, and every now and then this also results in something mostly round and brown.

If this is your idea of having fun, then please joins us on one of our meetings or as a permanent member. If by now you are thinking “this is weird”, then you are missing out on the rituals of a tradition that is several thousand years old and you are definitely in the wrong place. We are having fun. Are you? Do you live in the UK near Dudley, West Bromwich, Oldbury, Halesowen, Stourbridge, Kidderminster? We meet usually every 3rd Thursday of the Month at 6pm at Dudley College, Mons Hill, and we would be more than happy to welcome you to our next meeting.

 

Important Notes:

CONFIRMED on 25/09/2017 by Steve Johnson that Mons Hill will be open for our next club meeting, which will be on Thursday 19th October and Sally Burnett will be our professional demonstrator for the evening.

The Mons Hill site is due to close at the end of October and the committee have received confirmation from Steve Johnson ( Dudley College Estates manager ) that our new location will be in the College main building at The Broadway, Dudley DY1 4AS. Club members should access the Forum for the most up to date information.
