This course will enable delegates to acquire H&S accreditation certification through a ‘hands on’ approach using the different tools and holding devices found in school workshops. This course will consist of a presentation covering the DATA standards followed by practical experience in the use of a Harrison Graduate wood lathe.  The tasks included will be preparing timber, parallel turning, taper turning, convex turning, concave turning, finishing & parting off. Delegates will undertake a number of exercises, including turning between centres and using faceplates and chucks.  Delegates will then demonstrate competence by manufacturing a free turning exercise with a banksia nut, followed by a bowl, made from one of a selection of domestic timbers such as Sycamore, Lime, Beech or Ash. All the activities conform to the current D&T Association Training Standards.

Refreshments will be provided.
