Strathclyde Woodturner's News

Get Involved.

The club is run by the members for the members, so we are always looking for volunteers to help with the meetings. I appreciate that some members my be uncomfortable with doing a demonstration, but there are other ways you can help.

How about doing a "Me and my Workshop"

It is always interesting seeing other members turning and their workshop. All you need to to is take a few photographs of your workshop, bring along a few pieces of your turning and let the members know about you. How you got into turning, what you like to make and what you would like to make.

Or a "How I make it"

If you are making a piece that you think would be of interest to the members, please take step by step photographs and let us all know how you made it.

Our programmer, Alan Ewing, has a very small pool of members he can call on to do a demonstration, but you can still help.

You can get involved without needing to stand behind a lathe and turning something. A ten minute talk about you, your work work or workshop will make all the difference at our meetings.

Please contact Alan if you can help in any way.
