MARCH 2024 Update.

In March 2020 we had to close our thriving club due to the pandemic and it wasn’t until March 2022 that we were able to re-establish the Club. After such a prolonged enforced closure we had wondered whether we would be able to attract sufficient members for the Club to be viable, but our concerns proved unfounded. In addition to many former members re-joining, we attracted new members, and by the end of 2022 the club was back on a firm footing.

2023 was another very successful year and membership now stands at 60, at all ability levels from novice to experienced woodturners, with regular attendances of 45 – 50 at our meetings.

Who We Are

East Yorkshire Woodturners started life in 1997. Now in our 27th year, 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.

Who can attend?

Whether beginners, experts, or simply curious to know more about the hobby, all are most welcome to attend for two or three meetings. No need to book – just turn up and pay on entrance. The entrance fee for non-members is £6.00 per meeting for two or three meetings, after which we encourage visitors to join the Club.


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. There is no off-street parking – just park in a safe place on the Main Street, showing consideration for residents.

What We do

Meetings consist of professional guest demonstrators of national and international renown, and a monthly competition on various themed turning topics. We have an excellent programme lined up for 2024, with some demonstrators who are new to our club, and others who are firm favourites. The programme and personal profiles of the demonstrators can be viewed at the ‘Demonstrators’ tab at the top of this page.

Membership Fees

Our annual subscription is £40, plus £4 per meeting attended. Partners of members are welcome to attend as associate members, for which the annual subscription is £5.00, with no entry fees. The annual subscription for ‘Junior Members’ (under 18s) is £20.00, plus £2.00 per meeting attended. Under 16s may only attend with a responsible adult, and 16 – 18 yr olds, with the written permission of a parent or guardian.



Car Parking:


There is no off-street parking, so we ask that visitors and members park safely on Main Street, with due consideration for residents by not obstructing drives and farm entrances.

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!
