April Workshop

The April Workshop was held in Togher on Saturday 21st April. The new lathe was commissioned by 90 year old Michael Box. The audience were informed by the Chairman that a date has been set for the annual seminar 2013. It will be held in Midleton and the demonstrator will be Nick Arger. Further details will be posted at a later date.

The first demonstration was given by Paddy O Rourke, who turned a platter, and a small bowl.

After the tea-break, the monthly competition was held, the Chairman expressed great disappointment at the small number of entries and hoped that this number would be increased in subsequent competitions.

The second demonstration was given by John O Shea, who turned a mug holder. Again, another excellent demonstration. Further details will be given in the magazine.

March Workshop

The March Workshop started with a minute's silence for the late George Colton and his favourite prayer, the Carpenter's prayer,  was read by Brian McAdoo.

A large crowd of over 50 people attended the workshop, which was given by Peter Manning and Ger Hennessy. Peter turned a four-legged wicker stool and a carbiole leg. Ger turned a spinning top, which he designed especially for his grandchildren. Click here for a preview of some of the photographs. Full report to follow in the next edition of the newsletter.
