Interested in taking up woodturning or other wood crafts as a hobby??  Then why not visit the Council of Woodwork Clubs and Clubs area at the show to find where your nearest club is and find out how to join a group.  You don't need any woodworking experience to join a club -- you just need enthusiasm and a desire to learn.  Woodworking clubs are a great way to meet like minded people.  Clubs are open to both men and women so why not sit down with them and have a chat at the show.
