Graham and Alice

Todays Students Graham and Alice.
What a lovely couple and great company made for an enjoyable day.
Graham and Alice come from Bedford and were her for a days Woodturning experience. Originally it was only going to be Graham and Alice decided to join him at the last minute and I am pleased she did because it made for a great day lots of laughs and some good turning.
Graham turned a very nice Beech bowl and Alice turned a beautiful Sycamore bowl with a textured and coloured rim.
Very well done both of you.


  1. Well what can I say? We had a super day with the talented George and his lovely wife Susan!

    This was a birthday present for my hubby (who suffered a stroke 3 years ago) and I was a last minute ‘add on’. Neither of us had done anything like this before – I had never seen a lathe let alone used one! George was a great tutor with an abundance of patience and managed to watch over us both – teach us and keep us entertained all at the same time. We not only learned how to use a lathe – we made a beautiful bowl each – mine was a lovely sycamore bowl and my hubby’s was a beautiful beech bowl – we were both thrilled to bits with our makes!! George had lots of stories to tell – with a great sense of humour and his lovely wife supplied us with tea and biscuits during our breaks and a lovely sustaining lunch at lunchtime!

    Our day was very special and very much enjoyed! George’s wood turning tuition days are 5
    as far as we are concerned and highly recommended by us!!
