  • This month we welcome Rudy Lopez as our demonstrator, all the way from Florida (via Zoom, we can’t afford the air fare!)  Zoom details are in the newsletter and on the members only page.  Rudy will be demonstrating ‘Square to Round Bowls, Vases and Hollow forms‘.  You might remember Rudy from last December when he also demonstrated for us.

October 2021 (and before)

  • The second training day of the year was held on Thursday September 9th at Down Hatherley Village hall. We were very lucky with the weather and the training was carried out outside. 5 delegates attended and it was very successful.  

Next course will now be in 2022. If you are interested please contact John Hawkeswell or complete the contact form. Note this is open to members only due to insurance restrictions. These courses are intended for beginners.
