The Ise & Nene Valley Turners welcome you to our website. We are a new progressive club, only formed in August 2015, when a group of five like minded wood-turners felt there was a need for a club in the area. Whether you are an experienced turner, a novice or just somebody who is thinking about starting woodturning, we would love to see you at one of our meetings. There is always someone about who is willing to help and advise you or just compare notes on techniques etc.
We were fortunate to find our current venue, Cranford Village Hall, Grafton road, Cranford St Andrew, Northants, NN14 4JE, where we meet at 7pm on the first and third Thursday of each month. The centre has full access and toilets for people with disabilities, a kitchen, some parking and good connections by road from most parts of Northants and surrounding counties.
We are a very friendly community minded club which is affiliated to the AWGB and have a membership of 50 plus. We have an excellent audio visual system, two modern lathes and tools and we provide refreshments free of charge!!
We have demonstrations from well known professional turners most months and there is also the opportunity for ‘hands on’ evenings.
As a club we have been supported by the AWGB ,The National Lottery Fund and Kettering Borough Council.
Take a look at our website, and if it ‘grabs’ you, please contact us or just turn up.
