Welcome to the UKIWS

500px-UKIWS-LogoCome and join us in Coventry for a huge weekend of social Woodturning!


We have a brilliant collection of turning suppliers and traders from across the UK and Ireland, professional and amateur demonstrations running on both days, plus hundreds of woodturners from all over the UK and across the world coming to visit.

Hosted in the Hilton Hotel in Coventry, organisers, Martin, Mike, Steve and Rob will be pleased to meet you and greet you to this first of a kind event.  Entry costs from just £15.00 for a one day entry and includes the public demonstrations and car parking at the venue. Tickets are limited and you can get them HERE.


Whilst at the event, don’t miss out of the Master Classes hosted by some top class professional UK and Ireland turners. See here for details.
