Woohoo, we officially opened up our new workshop to the public on 29th November to coincide with the Craignure Village Hall Producer’s Market. Lots of people attended the market and most also seemed to come into the workshop, check out some of our turning and view our video feed of live turning (from a safe distance !).
A few adventurous visitors even received some hands on tuition.
The IoMWT workshop was then officially opened by Councillor Mary-Jean Devon. We’d like to say a big thank you to Mary Jean for opening our workshop and “throwing a few shavings” whilst she was with us.
Also a big thank you to all who came and contributed to the day whether demonstrating, selling turned items or just keeping the shavings under control in support of our first Open Day. We received lots of compliments on the day and encouragement afterwards, supportive of the aims of the Club and growing the initiative so quickly.
A few more people highlighted their interest in joining and there we sold some items too too which will help boost the Club’s funds.
Happy Christmas, we’ll see you in 2016, when we will be recycling our Christmas trees by putting them on the lathe !
