All-Women Woodturning Week 2025 –  Train the Trainer

Woodturning with Glenn Lucas  Monday 25th to Friday the 29th August 2025 in County Carlow, Ireland

A five day Scholarship for Women Woodturners Interested in Teaching

8 scholarships are being offered for women woodturners with an interest and some experience in teaching others. If you have a thirst for knowledge and a love for the lathe, we’d love to hear from you. Simply send ONE email to with a brief introduction, 3 or 4 photos of your recent work, your social media link/s, and any other details you’d like to include. Share with us why this experience matters to you and how it could shape your journey in woodturning.

Here’s what awaits you:

  • Five days of expert tuition with Glenn Lucas, completely free for you. An emphasis will be on teaching while equally enriching one’s turning experience.
  • All materials provided, including wood and daily lunches.
  • Tools, safety wear, and smocks, so you can focus solely on the class.
  • B&B accommodation at the charming Osborne’s Storehouse (Sun 24th-Sun 31st Aug 2025).
  • Daily transportation to and from the workshop to the accommodation. You are responsible for your own travel to Ireland – this is not covered by the scholarship.
  • A ‘meet the maker’ event after the week, where, if you wish, you can share a capsule of your own turning pieces with fellow enthusiasts (not your work from the class with Glenn).

Applications close on Monday July 1st, 2024.  Offers will be made by the end of July 2024.

This 5-minute video will give you an idea of what a class with Glenn entails.

Thank you for your interest in this programme. Best wishes from Glenn, Cornelia and all who make this happen.

All Women Woodturning Week Aug 2023. The 2023 class was aimed at entrepreneurial turners, this new 2025 class is especially for those who wish to develop as a woodturning teacher.
