South Downs Woodturners Competition

 

We run competitions for Sussex wood turners throughout the year so that members have an opportunity to show their work to others and promote discussion on a variety of techniques

See out HOME page for our next competition

We welcome any work with a turned element and some wood. You can make items as simple or complicated as you like. We encourage experimentation with any method of enhancing turned items, so burning, carving, colouring, incorporating other materials (e.g. glass, metal, plastics etc.), pierced elements, pyrography, texturing are all welcome. Alternatively just turn some wood! We do not wish to constrain your creativity and are happy for you to interpret competition briefs as broadly as you choose. If in doubt, please ask the Competition Secretary - Dave Smith

Items are judged using the following criteria: Design and Innovation   Finish   Turning Skills
