The annual seminar on the 4th of May was given by Pat Carroll who demonstrated how to turn a hollow form vase from a large block of syamore followed by the spraying and stenciling of a design on the vase. He suggested that the way turning is going now it is 20% cutting and 80% decoration of one sort or another.

The Wednesday demonstration was presented by Colum Murphy. Colum talked firstly about sharpening and showed how he sharpens his own tools. He then turned some Ash into a bowl demonstrating different cuts. He showed us how he turn bowls and by coring them beforehand you can use the core to put a foot on the bowl or alternately use a different wood for the foot.

There are no pictures of the Wednesday demo although I’m sure someone took some!
