I've really enjoyed all the demonstrating this summer, mostly outside in a gazebo! Luckily the weather has been fantastic this year as its definitely more fun than being indoors in the summer! The added bonus of being outside is that there is less sweeping up to do!
The photos below were taken at the Chard Reservoir Nature Reserve open day and Ferne Animal Sanctuary summer fair. At both events I demonstrated and sold small rustic bowls made from wet ash or oak from the reservoir, donating the proceeds to both causes.
At the beginning of September I demonstrated at Yandles show as part of Martock and District Woodturners Club. The club stand included a large display showcasing a range of club members' work. The following photos show a view of the stand and the club demonstrators in action.
The stand is always popular with show visitors, whether they are fellow woodturners or those interested in other crafts on show.
