Our all day meeting on the 27th July was a great success, it was organized by John Cheadle who arranged for 3 turners to do different demonstrations throughout the day, he also arranged for Celtic woodturning supplies to be present to sell their wares. We had a good response from our own members, but what was also very pleasing a group of 12 woodturners from the North Highlands Woodturners based in Castletown Caithness also attended the meeting, there were also representatives from the Elgin Woodturners. The day went very well and to schedule finishing off with the customary raffle. A summary of all 3 turners work follows in 3 separate galleries.
The all day event was first done in 2018 to good effect, this year however with the addition of Celtic Woodturning Supplies and a very good attendance this year was even better, we will be having an all day event again next year.
Graeme Taylor of Celtic Woodturning Supplies will be at our all day event on July 27th. His Facebook page has slightly more idea of what he supplies. If you see anything you’d like to pre order to pickup on the day, please give Alec Mutch the details of what you want.
In the meantime, we’ll see if he can provide a better idea of his product range beforehand, and post it here.
