Who We Are
East Yorkshire Woodturners started life in 1997 and membership has grown to some 65 woodturning enthusiasts from Hull and the East Riding, and we have a regular attendance of 45 – 50 members at meetings. Our aims are to promote and develop interest and expertise in the art and craft of woodturning and related subjects, and to provide support and encouragement to woodturning enthusiasts.
Where We Meet
We meet at Skidby village hall, Main Street, Skidby, East Yorks, HU16 5TX, on the third Tuesday of every month at 7pm prompt. We have a coffee break at 8pm, and conclude at 9.30pm. Visitors – whether beginners, experts, or anyone who is simply curious to know more about the hobby – are most welcome. No need to book – just turn up! There is no off-street parking – just park in a safe place on the Main Street, showing consideration for local residents.

Meetings consist of professional guest demonstrators of national and international renown, and a monthly competition on various themed turning topics. Several members have competed in regional and national competitions with much success.
