Welcome to the webiste of the Kerry Chapter of the Irish Woodturners Guild
Welcome. I hope that you will find items on the site which will be of interest to you and which will encourage you to a new enthusiasm for your own woodturning.
The emphasis of the club is to involve our members, particularly the less experienced, in hands-on demonstrations and to encourage as many members as possible to submit work for the Monthly Challenge Competition which is appraised by one of our experienced turners and a critique given to consider the various aspects of design, technique and finishing.
Our age range varies across the spectrum from the relatively young to the more mature, some of whom have passed their eightieth birthday. The degree of expertise is also varied but it has to be said that most members can produce work of a very acceptable standard. That said we do welcome those with no turning experience.
Any person visiting our site who has an interest in woodturning , is most welcome to apply for membership and begin what we hope will be a rewarding experience.
