Due to the popularity of wood turning, we are finding it increasingly difficult to match the small group of experienced members we have that volunteer to mentor, with new members for their first few visits.
We need several new volunteers over the whole range of sessions that are willing to donate a session or two to mentor a new member on their road to independent turning.
Several notices have been placed in the workshop, or you can email the secretary directly if you are willing to have your name added to the mentor list.
The more members we have, and session times where a mentor is available on the list, the easier it will be to reduce the waiting list times for new members, and share the workload more evenly and fairly across our membership.
The 2018 Club members challenge has landed!
The rules – make whatever you want with the majority of wood in the pack (everyone’s pack is the same)
No additional wood can be used.
You can add limited other materials for decorative or functional purposes, but the finished product has to be predominantly wood.
All entries must be submitted 18th May 2018 for judging at our annual show.
Previous years have produced some spectacular pieces of craftsmanship.
Get your thinking caps on & good luck everyone!!
This years AGM has been scheduled for Friday 18th May 2018, with our Annual Show and awards ceremony on Saturday 19th May 2018.
Mr Colin Gardiner will be our guest judge.
Don’t forget there will be a new Club Challenge set!!
