Phillip Greenwod was the visiting expert and, once we’d managed to sort out the complexities of a new camera which insisted on inverting the projected image, gave  yet another most informative and precise demonstration of how to create an Ear Ring Stand. As always Phillip was considerate of the number of new/novice turners and took care to explain various aspects of the technique. Thank you Phillip.

Myerscough College Open Day & Country Fair – 11 June 2017

RRWTC attended this years Myerscough College Open day on Sunday 11 June 2017 with an extensive display and demonstrations including items for sale.

Due to an extremely wet Saturday the parking area was some way from the display marquee which presented a bit of a set up challenge! However, Myerscough provided a fleet of golf buggys to ferry equipment and stock to the display area. Despite not being 4×4’s no buggy was lost and the set up process was completed by 09:30 in a very popular location for both stall holders and visitors.

With occasional showers helping to drive visitors into the marquee quite a successful day was had by all.
