Demonstrations 2023

Andy James – April 2023

A demonstration of the art and science of turning segmented hollow forms – an area where experimentation and patience can produce very impressive results.

Ian Clarkson – September 2023

A fascinating demonstration including turning a very thin thickness bowl and an end-grain bowl – and a pair of earrings. Plenty of wisdom and wit and an encouragement to try things out. Remember don’t ask ‘what’s it for?’ It’s not ‘for’ anything! Thank you, Ian.

Rick Dobney – November 2023

A high quality demonstration of turning an elegant multi-axis candlestick in sycamore. Rick kindly also supplied detailed step by step build instructions which were distributed by email to members after the meeting.

To add to the festive spirit, Rick added a quick example of turning wonky Xmas trees that can made be using scraps of branch wood lying about the workshop. There – Xmas gifts sorted!

Thanks also to Rick for judging our annual club competition.
