Looking to find a local (ish) woodturning course now that I have retired and want to renew my basic skill set.

Melbourne South East suburbs. I live in Pakenham

Try Holmesglen TAFE. They used to run hobby woodworking courses but not sure about turning.

Hi Darkside5374,
As TL said, much better going to a Wood Club.
TAFE, don't appear to be interested in Wood Turning.
I'm almost certain you will be well looked after by Joining up.
They will also guide you as to what to buy, as in Lathe & Tools.
