Ladies of the Lathe (LotL)

All female members of the FRW, aged 18 or older, are invited to join the Ladies of the Lathe. Turning is a skill that anyone can learn. LotL is intended to provide a comfortable, easy-paced, and non-threatening environment for women to learn to advance their skills in turning.

Turning is a finesse skill, so massive muscles are not required. We need more lady turners to make shavings. Why should the guys have all the fun?

For more information please contact our “Ladies of the Lathe Chairperson”

The Workshops

LOTL meets once a month to learn and practice woodturning.
