Virtual all day event 25-07-2020.

Our annual all day event should have been happening this Saturday 25th July 2020, this is now a virtual meeting. The day was being organised by David Hobson, it would normally start at 10am through to 4pm with 3 turners working the lathe in roughly 1 & 3/4 hour sessions. This meeting was open to the public for a small fee.

As there is no meeting I am inviting you all to make something of interest to the rest of the members, it can be anything at all, turned or otherwise, but do make something and send the pictures along with a bit of text on what you have made.

The 3 people that were to be demonstration are, Pam Harris from 10am to 11.45am, Gary Lowe from 12pm to 13.45pm and Andy Walters from 14.00pm to 16.00pm.

I have included a few pictures from past open days for your viewing and possibly to give you some inspiration.

This off set goblet was made by Fred Houghton from the North Highland Woodturners in 2018, Fred was one of our visiting turners invited to demonstrate.
A wall hanging made by Mark Sutton at our 2019 meeting.
Here we have a very interesting take on a spinning top, made by Gary Lowe our guest turner in 2019.
A natural edged bowl I made at the 2018 meeting, the bowl is Spalted Beech.

Please get into your workshops and produce something to remember this day, you have until mid day on Sunday the 26th July to make and send me your pictures before I upload them to our web site.
