The evening began by Geoff introducing the project for the night – Making a Xmas Decoration – and then delegating the MC duties to his new assistant Russell! Chairman Alan showed an impressive range of ornaments and explained the techniques involved in making them.
Geoff then continued the theme in his usual amusing fashion.
The baton was taken enthusiastically by Russell and Alan Jones with Roy finishing up a very interesting section of the evening by describing how he made his pagoda tealight holder.
After the break a few members shared their experiences of turning a variety of objects. Novice turner Brian showed us 2 items made from spalted beech and the problems he’d encountered. Steve showed a trio of off – centre bowls in sycamore. More accomplished segmented bowls shown by Geoff and Roy rounded off an interesting selection of work.
