Christmas Craft Event
Join us in-store for our annual Christmas Woodworking Show. This year we have an action-packed day with 15 demonstrators showcasing their skills and offering advice on everything from woodturning to tool sharpening and everything in between.
In amongst the interactive workstations will be local professional woodcarver Keith Barrett talking about his work, while members of the Northumbrian Woodturners Association share their wealth of experience. The Kibblesworth Woodcrafters will be encouraging you to have a go while providing practical guidance on scroll sawing, bandsaw boxes, pyrography, Japanese hand tools and UJK dovetail jigs.
We'll also have some cracking Christmas deals on the day and with a complimentary mince pie and a cup of tea, it'll be a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.
Free Power Tool Demonstration
Festool rep Trevor Wilkinson will be in-store, over two days, showcasing the latest range of power tools including the new tloc system, as well as introducing the Festool vacuum due for release in 2020.
