Welcome to woodturning in the Cotswolds

West Oxon Woodturning Association (WOWA) meet on the first Tuesday of every month at Elderbank Village Hall, Brize Norton, near Witney, Oxfordshire OX18 3PR. (Start 7:30 to about 10:00pm) Map & directions. Non-members are very welcome. Members and visitors must be over 16. Meetings comprise of demonstrations either by one of our members or by a professional Turner or just Hands On.

All demonstrations are enhanced by the use of video projection & sound systems which allow everyone to view the intricacies of the finer points of wood turning. Please come along and enjoy an evening.

Ever wanted to have a go at woodturning but didn't know where to start ?

At WOWA we can show you where to start. Just making shavings to competition winning pieces, we have members of all levels who can help and advise. Some do not have lathes and are just starting out, others have a few years of experience, some are excellent turners.

We all have the enjoyment of sharing our experiences at what we consider to be a very friendly and welcoming club.

With the help of a grant from the West Oxon Leisure and Tourism's Support for the Arts funding the club now has a lathe - complete with a set of tools - to loan to members for a short period of time to give woodturning a try.
