Woodturning Demonstrations and Event
One of the features of Turners Retreat is the woodturning demonstrations we hold here at Faraday Close, Harworth. These take places most months of the year on the second Saturday. The demonstration events usually last from 10am - 4pm unless stated otherwise. Some of our demonstrations do require a £3 entry fee which gives you entrance to the demonstration, free refreshments all day and a ticket for our prize draw. Car parking at our store is free. We also hold special events throughout the year so make sure you check this page regularly.
