Forest of Bere Woodturners Association (Havant) Challenging and developing turning skills

The club runs a monthly members’ competition that is designed to stretch the skills and imagination of the entrants.


The competition comprises three categories; Beginners/Novices, Intermediate and Advanced and is judged by our panel of judges, headed by Malcolm Bryant, who award marks to each entry.


The competition year runs from September to August, the monthly scores are added to give a winner and runners up in each category.


The September competition is slightly different from the others as the piece turned by the Novice, Intermediate and Advanced categories is one off personal choice and it is used to help determine which category individuals should be entering in the following year.


The first piece for the newly introduced beginners will be used to determine their skill levels, should they wish to take advantage of the training sessions that we run.

Normal Club Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month
