Phil Irons – Demonstration - Saturday 26th July.

The Midlands Chapter of the Irish Woodturners’ Guild will hold their one-day workshop in The Carpentry Store on Saturday the 26th July. Phil Irons will host three 90-minute demonstrations starting at 10.30am sharp. There will be a break for a light lunch and the demonstrations should finish at about 4pm.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see one of the masters at work. Phil is the author of several magazine articles and a best selling project book “Woodturning, Two in One” that has been translated into nine languages.

He is best known for his coloured vessels and hollow forms with their clear, beautiful shapes and flowing lines, always striving for the perfect form. He uses wood salvaged from tree surgeons and firewood merchants. This wood often has no other commercial value other than as firewood. He uses contemporary colours to enhance the hidden figure in white woods. By doing this he can transform something very bland into something special.

This is a ticket event and must be booked in advance.

Cost €25.00

Please call 045 883088 during business hours to book your place. 


We look forward to meeting you again and hope you can come along to one of our events. We are continually extending our range of products so do drop in and have a look around. You can find us in the M7 Business Park at junction 10, Naas, Co. Kildare.


Yours sincerely,

Noel and Patrick Fay
