January has been quiet for teaching but it has given me a chance to catch up with some making which has been a bonus and also a chance to get some well earned rest.
Today I have the first students of 2015 Rob and Carolyn.
Their experience day was a Christmas present from Carolyn's sister Alison.
They are a lovely couple and a real pleasure to work with and I have feeling they will be taking up woodturning as a hobby.
Here are a few pictures from the day and look how well they did.
