We had a request at last weeks Monday session for another professional demonstration to be booked. So we need your suggestions as to who you would like to see. Suggestions so far as as follows:
You can see more of this young turner's work on his website.
You can see more of Roberto's work on his website.
You can find out more about John Jordan on his website.
You can find more about Darren Breeze on his website.
If you have any other suggestions then please send them to me before Monday's meeting.
We will do the same as last time and take a vote on it, the demonstrator with the most votes will be contacted and we will try to sort out the fees, dates etc etc.
Looking forward to any of these!!
Every Monday 7pm UK Time (Free session!!)
All you need to be is a woodturner or have an interest in woodturning and be willing to share!
