At the moment we are undergoing a reorganisation which includes a new web site. As a result this site will not be updated as frequently from now on.  Up to date information can be found at “thewoodturningclub”

Get started on this consuming pass-time by submitting your details to our club secretary to get on the membership waiting list

Birstall Woodturning Club is situated in the West Yorkshire town of Mirfield. We are a vibrant club serving the needs of our 150+ members with a well equipped workshop which includes 16 lathes, bandsaws, sanders and a planer/thicknesser.

We cater for both the experienced turner who may wish to develop his skills and for the complete novice. Tuition and advice is freely available from our team leaders and the more experienced members.

We also work closely with various community groups including the Scouts,and other groups, taking them through one of the Duke of Edinburgh modules.

If you think woodturning may be for you, come along and get first hand experience from those involved at the club on a regular basis.

Come along. You will be made welcome.

Please note that the club operates purely for hobby and social purposes and whilst  commissions and projects are undertaken for community organisations, we do not provide a commercial service. E.g. A batch of staircase spindles. Is is possible however that an individual member would undertake to reproduce a broken spindle in exceptional circumstances.

    Visited the club for their fund raising day a short time ago and ignited the urge to take up woodturning.
    Made two visits so far and met some very friendly people who have given me excellent tuition. Managed to produce a bowl at the first attempt and now attempting a vase.
    Enjoyed my inyroductory visit so much that I have joined the club.
    Thanks to Stephen for all his help, to Tony for the encouragement and to the other club members who have offered their help, advice and friendship.
