Show & Tell Tasks for June & July
We have a couple of Show & Tell Tasks coming up in the next few weeks, first of all This Thursday 6th June 2019 we have the Demo by Walter and Rob for the July Task which is to make an animal. Plans for a Love Bird and a Cat can be found by clicking the link in the Events page.
The Show and Tell Task for June will be on the 20th June 2019 and is all about a two part hollow form so if you haven’t finished yours yet (or even started it) there is still time.
As always the Demo evening will start as close to 7pm as possible because time is limited as most members will know.
Crow Valley at the Axminster Challenge, Cardiff
Thank you to those of you who supported the club last Saturday at the Axminster Woodturning Competition either by taking part, supplying items for the gallery or being there on the day.
We are pleased to say our gallery won first prize ( £30 voucher), Rob Williamsr won the clock competition ( £20 voucher) and a special thank you to Glyn for representing the club in the nerve racking ‘turning competition’ and came away with a well earned prize.
The vouchers will be used to buy equipment for the club.
A good day for the club – thank you.
22nd November 2018 was our annual Oz Award Competition
‘Thanks go to those who took part in our annual Award evening, either by entering their work, casting votes or helping with the arrangements. There were some beautiful pieces in the gallery and the quality of the turning/ finishing and the artistic flair have really improved, it was felt this year was the hardest competition to select the first choice.
After counting your votes, congratulations went to Ken for winning the Oz Award trophy for 2018, Rob being awarded the second and third place certificates and Jeff Stephens for earning the Gordon’s cup.
Thank you again to everyone for taking part and well done to all those who rose to the challenge.
