These days the Village Turners have an involvement with the Peterborough U3A (The University of the Third Age). Those members of the U3A who wish to try their hand at woodturning are given the opportunity to do so under the guidance of members of the club.

The demand for this taster session has been so high that we are now running a similar one on Fridays as well.

These sessions are now held on Wednesdays and Fridays at the request of both partcipants and members.

 If you would like to try woodturning to see if it is a hobby you would like to pursue but don’t want to incur the expense of buying equipment, then an option is to join the U3A and try their taster. Be aware though, there is a waiting list!

U3A sessions start at 9.00am to 12.00pm and 1.00pm to 4.00pm each Wednesday and Friday.
Please note the change in days to Wednesdays and Fridays.
