Looking for fun things to do in Sydney? Join a woodturning class with Wood Academy in Marrickville and learn the fundamentals of turning!

This is a two-day workshop-style course for students who wish to develop their skills in woodturning.

Your teacher, Simon will discuss the basics of spindle turning and bowl turning. You'll have your own lathe and plenty of hands-on time to work on various projects.

The skills taught will include turning between centres, using faceplates, and how to turn a bowl, lidded box and platter. Tools used will consist of both traditional turning chisels and carbide turning chisels.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Turn a basic V cut and bead with a skew chisel.
  • Turn a basic candlestick between centres with beads and coves
  • Safely mount timber into a chuck or onto a faceplate cutting a tenon
  • Turn a Spinning Top using skills learnt from the candlestick and adding new turning skills
  • Adding colour and texture to turning
  • Mounting a blank onto either a chuck or faceplate for open-face turning
  • Turning using bowl gouges along with scrapers
  • Sanding techniques for bowls
  • Finishing

There’s a certain magic in creating something with your own two hands. The focus it demands, the joy it imparts, the sense of accomplishment when you transform a simple piece of timber into something extraordinary. At Wood Academy, we celebrate the power of craftsmanship, the way it can ignite passion, inspire creativity, and instil a deep sense of satisfaction. It’s why we believe in one simple truth: Wood Work is good work. The more makers in this world, the better.
