Experience Woodturning at its best!

The Ipswich Woodcrafts club is proud to announce that they will be hosting the annual Q- Turn in 2023. We hope to make the next event even better.

A three day week end starting at 10am Friday and concluding with lunch Sunday. A weekend of mateship and sharing all the joys of woodturning and woodworking in general.  This will be the 22nd Q-Turn event.

All meals from your Friday lunch meal to Sunday lunch are included and your accommodation is supplied by way of bunkhouse style bedding. Separate rooms are available for couples.

All you need to bring is your tools, portable lathe and screen if possible and your favourite piece of timber and project.
*Don’t worry if you don’t have a lathe there will be a couple extra and there are persons willing to share.

Learners are most welcome and there are people available for teaching over the entire weekend.

Please note that we have accommodation booked for 75 people so don’t delay if you want to come. Following the success of the new venue where everybody had a good time with excellent food and beds we are expecting record numbers this year so get in early to avoid disappointment. Don’t forget that all bedding is now supplied so that makes room for more wood.
