 Welcome to the Garden of England

Wood Turners.


Hi, we have just had a thought provoking Saturday professional demonstration, by Steve Heeley. Without doubt, he is an accomplished turner. As part of his demonstration he also showed us texturing and colouring leaving us all in no doubt as to his preferred colour pallet.  It must be very challenging to stand in front of a room full of turners, all of whom have there very fixed views on how items should look,  but most times cheerfulness and good grace can get you through the day.  Thank you Steve for some lovely turning.


The next Hands on Night will see a demonstration by none other than our Chairman Iain Sutherland. Iain will be turning paperweight hedgehogs. Always a consummate professional it is bound to be entertaining and engaging,  so come along and give him your support, and try your hand afterwards.

Well that's all for now  keep up the good work and Makin Shavins
