Private woodturning date at Factur

Date night can easily slip into routine after a few months of the same old dinner and a movie night out. That’s why we’re always looking for new, unique experiences for couples to enjoy together in Orlando.

If you’re looking to pick up a new skill this spring, consider the new private woodturning date night workshop at Factur.

During the class, you and your date will create a wooden corkscrew and bottle opener to take home.

During this uncommon experience you’ll feast on pizza, sip wine, and work together to craft your own wooden corkscrew and bottle stopper. Master Woodturner Roger Dale Scott of WoodPops will be your instructor for the evening. Under his expert guidance, you’ll learn how to use a machine called a lathe to turn your wood creations.

All classes are taught in Factur’s woodturning studio. Factur is a unique co-working space located in Ivanhoe Village near Downtown Orlando, right next to Hideaway Bar.

Woodturning is a form of woodworking similar in concept to a potter’s wheel. The wood turns on a machine called a lathe while cuts are made to create a variety of wooden objects.

Each class lasts approximately 3.5 hours, or longer if you’re having a lot of fun.
