Welcome to the FoBWA

If you are interested in joining or coming as a guest please come along to any of our meetings & make yourself known to a club member.

We are a friendly group of enthusiasts who enjoy the art and craft of woodturning. We have over 100 members, both male and female, of all abilities from absolute beginner to advanced and professional.


The club meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 7.15 p.m. at the St. John Ambulance headquarters in Fraser Road, Bedhampton, PO9 3EJ (map).

We also run a Saturday club once a month where tuition, advice & a warm welcome are available for all levels of turner.

Throughout the year we welcome guest woodturners, either professionals or from within the club.  

Other evenings are run as ‘turn-Ins’ when club members show different ideas on many aspects of turning.

The club also runs monthly competitions with four different ability levels.
