About Strathclyde Woodturners
Strathclyde Woodturners was formed in 2002 and is affiliated to the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain.
Amongst other aims, our constitution seeks to foster a greater awareness of the Turners’ Art & Craft, and to promote the art of Woodturning amongst both Woodturners and the General Public. Consequently we have held, and will in the future, hold public demonstrations and exhibitions.
At various times we have been invited to participate in various woodland related events, where we demonstrate woodturning, and give hands-on experience. We have also been approached by other bodies, e.g. organisations for the physically disabled, such as the ALPHA Project, also the Scottish Prison Service, to provide assistance in training, rehabilitation etc.
Our present membership, which is open to all and includes members from as far afield as the Firth of Clyde, the Firth of Forth and Perthshire is now over 30. The number of persons attending our monthly meetings in Lenzie averages 20.
