Mike and Fiona

A very enjoyable day today with my Students Mike and Fiona. Mike is a Doctor who has taken early retirement to work in Nepal doing Ear nose and throat surgery on people that could not normally afford it. Mike and Fiona are living there at their own expense out of the kindness of their hearts. They have been doing this for many years when Mike took unpaid leave to go there and help the people.
These are a really wonderful caring couple and great company.
We had a most enjoyable day lots of banter and a lot of good work done .
The end result is two lovely Beech bowls .
Fiona's favourite colour is blue so she coloured her rim blue and Mike did a bit of texturing and a bit of blue on his rim.
Thank you Mike and Fiona for a wonderful days company.

  1. Dear George,

    We arrived on a blustery day at your home and were welcomed
    with a lovely cup of tea and relaxed and informative chat
    about what would be involved during the one-day woodturning

    It was an amazing day and we came away with a fantastic bowl
    each a terrific feel good factor

    You explained everything very patiently and thoroughly and
    guided us through the process making it fun and creative.

    Thank you to Susan for a lovely lunch and for giving up your
    day for us.

    We really appreciated your expertise and enjoyed looking at
    your collection of work too.

    THANK YOU George, Susan and Tufty!

    Best wishes,
    Fiona and Mike Smith
