There is only a bit over a month to go for the two day weekend workshop demonstration conducted by Western Australian Professional Woodturner Neil Turner.
The exposure to this degree of expertise, knowledge and skills is hard to come by, especially when there are only 40 or so participants and it virtually becomes one on one tuition/training without interruption for a bit over 6 hours per day. Pretty good value really, for when you take your catered lunch, tea, coffee, cake and biscuits out of the equation, it comes down to about $25.00 or $30.00 per day for the knowledge.
Naturally the benefits to be gained are self improvement, advancement of your skills, techniques, woodturning methods, and increasing your overall woodturning knowledge. At the same time you can catch up with old acquaintances, meet new friends and treat the weekend as a general social gathering with likeminded woodies.
I know for a fact that some of the previous attendees have gleaned additional skills, techniques and methods that have enhanced their turning abilities from work displayed/photographed/reported on, as well as from general comments made.
A perfect example of skill enhancement from workshop participation can be seen by the varying degrees of works currently on show at the Northern Turners Inc Exhibition, "Wood Revisited" at the Port Adelaide Community Arts Centre.
As we have said before, we have conducted numerous demonstrations by professional turners over the last seven or eight years and they have all been well supported and enjoyed by all those who have attended. So please don't miss out! Please ring Brian Purcell (8262 6551) to book your spot.
