Our meeting on the 10th June 2021 was to be organised by Peter Lawrence, the theme for the meeting was making Weed Pots , this meeting had to be changed to a virtual meeting due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. However we did ask you all to make a Weed Pot or two and to send some pictures of what you made to me for publication on our club web site, the response was as usual very poor from our membership with only two entries other than that from myself, the entries came from two stalwarts for the club, those being Dave Line and Nick Simpson. We are very grateful to Dave and Nick for supporting the club so diligently but we would very much like to see many more of our members taking part in the virtual scene, this is the only way at present we can keep the club alive, if you don’t take part how can the club survive.Continue reading “Report on our virtual meeting 10-06-2021 Weed Pots.”
Our next meeting is due to be held on Thursday 10th June 2021, it was to be organised by Peter Lawrence and the subject matter is making weed pots. This meeting has been turned into a virtual meeting due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, that does not mean you do not have to do anything, we would like you all to make a weed pot or 2 and then take some pictures of what you make and send them to me for publication on our club web site, do remember to give me some information on what you made and why, we would all like to see your efforts. The weed pots can be made from any wood, in any shape, laminated if you care to do it, in other words anything you like.
I have given you a couple of pictures of some weed pots I had made in the past, you do not need to copy these, they are there just as an example.
Come on everyone, get busy and make a few weed pots, the more the merrier, you will not be limited to one picture, let me have lots of pictures.
You will have until Friday 11th June 2021 to get your entries to me at,
Remember the clubhouse remains closed.
Minutes from the meeting on the 6th June are available on the meetings page
Our meeting on the 28th May 2021 was to be organised by myself, I chose to demonstrate the making of an Inside-out-turning, as this could not be done in our premises due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions I decided to do a time line on the making of an Inside-out-turning. I did ask for you all to contribute something to this meeting but only one lot of pictures have been received, they are on the subject of Inside-out-turning and they came from Dave Line, thank you Dave for taking the time to include your work.Continue reading “Report on our virtual meeting 28-05-2021 Inside-out-turning.”
