THE WOODTURNERS ASSOCIATION OF GWYNEDD
was formed by a small group of local woodturners in 1994 with the help of two well know professional woodturners, Jules Tattersall and Mike Scott with the aim of promoting and encouraging the craft and art of woodturning throughout North Wales.
The first meetings were hosted by Douglas Jackson at ‘Jackson Supersharp’ premises in Menai Bridge. Later on the Association moved it’s activities to Bangor Cricket Club but now the club meetings take place in Llandygai Community Hall in Llandygai Village, Bangor.
The Association holds regular monthly meetings when professional woodturners and club members demonstrate their skills.We also have club meetings to encourage newcomers to hone their skills on the club lathe.
Three woodturning exhibitions and sales take place each year in Beaumaris Town Hall. These are in May, August and October. The actual dates of these exhibitions will be found in the club programme elsewhere on this web site.
