Pen Making Course for Home Woodworkers

Pen making is a very rewarding hobby which can be learnt quickly without the need for a workshop or any significant financial investment. The lathe can be set up on a table top anywhere in the home as it only weighs 2.5kgs and is very quiet running. This course is held at my workshop near Guildford where I am able to provide individual instruction for up to three people at a time.

During this one day course you will learn how to select the correct grained wood, drilling and gluing the barrels ready for turning on the lathe and then final finishing techniques to give a long lasting appearance to complement the 10ct gold or chrome fittings. A choice of pen kits and materials is included in the cost.

Pens, Roller balls, Biros and Pencils are all made in the same way and make very acceptable presents for family and friends.

The cost of the course is £250
Commences at 9.00am and finishes at 5.00pm

All refreshments and lunch are provided and prepared from our own home grown produce
