Reviewing the first four months of 2021, demonstration subjects have covered turning burls, multi-axis turning, and burning as a method of texturing and embellishing wood. Within each of these topics, there are a myriad of processes that can be explored and tried by our members.
Coming up, in the next couple of months, we will have demonstrators show us how Podlets are made and how inlays can be used in our woodturning projects. Each of these demonstrations will open new doors to even more possibilities for each of us to explore.
While it is frustrating that we are unable to meet face to face, have live demonstrations and physical workshops, WGNC has successfully created some virtual venues that allow members to experience demonstrations virtually.
Spawned from WGNC’s monthly in person galleries, our virtual Show & Tell galleries have been a way for members to continue to share projects, new experiences with wood and wood embellishing, seek input and advice from other members and to have some fun while doing it.
WGNC will be continuing our virtual Show and Tell evenings, which have become quite popular with our members. In addition, we also want to continue to encourage members to try some of the themes from our demonstrations by tackling a project that has been presented or by applying any of the many methods and techniques learned in these demonstrations.
