HASCA Woodturning Course 14+

Learn Wood Turning at the North Shore Woodturners Guild.

This excellent programme is for home educated students aged 14+ (absolutely no exceptions on age). As they create amazing projects, the students will be given careful guidance by the passionate people at the North Shore Woodturners Guild, Glenfield. These classes are for HASCA members’ children who hold a current exemption to home educate. (Enquiries to Sandra hasca.nz@gmail.com.) *Classes run Thursday mornings 9am-12pm, usually in terms 1 & 3.

2022 What & When: 

Commencing 19/05, this Advanced Woodturning Course is for returning students who have completed two courses. It will run for 7-weeks in term 2. Students will gain skills that will enable them to work independently next term: advanced students will move to Friday mornings from term 3 to begin a self-led programme.
