Ise & Nene Vallery Turners, Wood

Ise and Nene Vallery Turners were formed three years ago by five enthusiastic wood turners, after realising there was not a woodturning club within a 30 mile radius of Kettering. The club meets on the third Thursday of each month at Cranford Village Hall, where they hold demonstrations by either professional turners or club members. The club is extremely friendly and welcomes new members of all abilities. They often attend local fetes to perform demonstrations and promote their craft.
