Diary of Events 2019
The following are the dates and details of specific events which have taken place or are planned for 2019. All Wednesday evening events take place at our club rooms at Hemlington Recreation Centre, Cass House Road, Hemlington, Middlesbrough.TS8 9QW
All Wednesdays, other than those listed here, are club "hands on" evenings.
Wed 16: We will start the New Year with a demonstration by club member Stan Lax.
Stan completely lost his voice on the moroning of this demo which prompted a last minute change of plan. Luckily club memebr Dennis Wake stepped in at very short notice (he was in bed after night shift when I woke him up mid morning - sorry Dennis)and gave us an excellent demo.
Dennis produced a square bowl with lid and finial. It was interesting and informative for both new starters and experienced turners. Thanks Dennis for an excellent evening.
Wed 20: Demonstration by club member Nigel Coates.
As always, Nigel gave us a completely different subject and gave us a completely new and interesting insight to the humble bud vase. He demonstrated many new techniques and gave us lots to think about and try at home.
Wed 20: Visiting turner Richard Kennedy RPT will give our first professional demonstration of the year.
Wed 17: Club AGM. Something else will be arranged to complete the evening.
Wed 15: A return visit by popular request... Emma Cook RPT, the Tiny Turner.
