Chris and Cathy

Today my Students were Chris and Cathy from Cardiff.
Chris has had an interest in wood for some time and is about to buy a second hand lathe and equipment from a Relative so Cathy thought it would be nice for him to have some Woodturning Tuition.
I have really enjoyed their company today and I feel sure the will be back some time in the future.
They both took too turning very easily and made a couple of very nice Sycamore Bowls.
Chris chose having a textured and coloured rim and actually did the texturing himself.
Cathy chose making a fruit bowl with a rolled edge.


  1. Dear George and Susan,
    Many, many thanks for an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable day last Friday. Apart from learning the basics of turning, we actually produced a bowl and got to take it home! Thank you for your patience and expertise and we both hope to come to Burnham for another hands on tuition day. The supply of tea, biscuits, soup and a Daphne cutting was very welcome and please pass on our thanks to Susan.
    The best part of the day for me was to see a bowl develop and emerge from the sycamore blank you provided and thank you for your input of the coloured rim. Cathy has taken hers to Devon this weekend to show her Mum!
    You have sown the seed of woodturning and next time we come over the bridge, I hope we can bring something we have made in Wales!
    Thanks again,
    Chris and Cathy

  2. We are pleased you enjoyed your day here as much as we enjoyed your company and we look forward to seeing you some time in the future
