Newcastle Store - Halloween Scroll Saw Decorations

FREE Woodworking Demonstration

Join us in-store this October half term as we create some spooktacular Halloween decorations. Store team members Helen and Mark will demonstrate the creative versatility of the Axminster Scroll Saw, providing guidance on machine set up, safe use and blade choice whilst helping you make your own take-home decoration. 'Terrifying Templates,' including bats, ghosts, witches hats and cats, will be available for you to choose from or you can use your own design - and you’ll have the chance to use a pyrography pen to add some scary detail.

This is a FREE event with no tricks, so it’ll be all treat!
