The Wonder of Wood

Turning Timber into Treasure

 

I am delighted to have been invited by Wycombe Museum to demonstrate at their Chilterns' Traditional Arts and Crafts Day as part of the Wycombe Arts festival.

I will be taking a small lathe and demonstrating how to turn some small Items and promoting woodturning and the Middlesex Woodturning Association.

It promises to be a good day so why not come along and bring a picnic which you can enjoy in the museum grounds.

Entry to the event and the museum is free.

The details are below from the wycombe museum website:
