Scroll saw group
The club has a number of scroll saws and a very active group lead by some very experienced and fine exponents of the craft, catering for old hands and learners alike.
Box Making Group
The activities of the Box making group is rather self explanatory. Members use these group sessions to work on or be guided in the process of making boxes of any size, shape or use.
The carving group meet twice monthly on the first and third Friday morning and enjoy the social aspect as well as sharing in the progress and quality of their work.
The club has a couple of experienced luthiers and many enthusiastic instrument makers completing a range of projects as broad as guitars, ukuleles, 3 and 4 string CBGs and violins.
We have a number of very experienced woodturners and two different group sessions catering for all levels of wood turning, with enough lathes of various sizes for all types of projects.
The word comes from the Greek “pur” (fire) and “graphos” (writing), meaning writing with fire. In modern practise, this is more drawing than writing, with some artists creating truly fantastic pieces of art.
Monday mornings at the club are set aside for mentoring new members, including project making and training on all the general wood working machinery.
There are a few sessions each week where any club member may attend and work on their own particular project or collaborative projects.
This group meets weekly to work on the particular children’s toy that will be available for all children attending the annual exhibition to assemble and take home.
