Our retail shop in Little Yeldham has finally closed for business, after 30 years of trading as the building is being re-developed. Thanks and best wishes to all our brilliant customers. Please continue to shop online at Turners Retreat. The Peter Child website will continue to offer articles and advice on woodturning and pyrography but will not be offering items for sale.

Visit the Turners Retreat website

Pyrography outfits are now being manufactured by the well respected Robert Sorby tool company in Sheffield. The Peter Child machine will be available in most countries from any Robert Sorby stockist. In UK the main distributer and retailer is Turners Retreat in Harworth (Craft Supplies). Machines, spares, and service will continue to be available from them.

All about us (the good things anyway)

We were a small family firm founded by the late Peter Child. For over 40 years we have specialised in helping woodturners enjoy their hobby. We pride ourselves on the quality of advice freely given to all turners - especially beginners, and hope to continue by adding to this website.
