The Worshipful Company of Turners’ biennial turning competitions are well established in the City and Craft calendar. Use our next one to CONNECT with a London audience and potential buyers to get your name known.

Fresh opportunities in 2023 include a new category ‘Master’s Exhibition’, which is by invitation only. Through the theme, ‘Coronation’, it will showcase the finest elite woodturning in the UK. Curators from the V&A museum in London will be making a ‘choice’ award from this collection.

Try something new, by merging pewter, leather or both into your woodturning. The ‘Master’s Mixed Media Competition’, not only gives turners the chance to mix wood with pewter and leather, but also to work on a project and CONNECT with other skilled craftspeople. Contact Becca at, and she will make enquiries through the Livery Companies if you wish to work with a pewterer or leatherworker.

There’s also the opportunity for you to sell your work to those who are passionate about shopping for beautiful, unique handmade woodturned pieces. At the competitions, we are giving the purchaser the chance to CONNECT with you, the maker and perhaps commission their own special piece.

Details of the 10 competitions are described here, and online entry forms are now available. Please ensure your entry form has been submitted before Monday 18th September 2023 as forms received after this date will not be accepted. No entry will be accepted without prior registration.
