We are trying out a new page in order to keep people up to date. ‘Whats On’ will relate to forthcoming demonstrations so why not check it out.

People who are thinking of taking up woodturning may find demonstrations a useful introduction  and will be able to resolve any initial questions. Non members are welcome on demonstration nights at a cost of £5.00 which helps with the cost of providing the demonstrators who often have to travel considerable distances.


Birstall Woodturning Club is situated in the West Yorkshire town of Mirfield. We are a vibrant club serving the needs of our 100+ members with a well equipped workshop which includes 18 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.
