One of the most common items in everyday life is the common pen and making one yourself from wood and acrylic can be accomplished by anyone.

Join us for a 3-hour training on how to make pens from end to end and in that time make up to 5 pens for yourself, family or friends.

We use a specialist pen lathe that is safe and easy to use and requires absolutely no special skills or previous woodworking experience. While all the pen kits are known as “slimline” you decide the final shape and style that suits your creativity. Once familiar with the simple techniques a wood pen usually takes under 15 minutes and acrylic under 20 minutes.  


No experience necessary, All materials will be provided for you to be able to create four pens out of 4 different wood types and 1 in Acrylic.
