Paul had re-engineered 4inch nails to create stitching e ects on a carved satchel, Di had invented a see-through depth gauge for relief carving, Pippa had used bits of hacksaw blade to make tiny saws and Ces had repurposed bits of aluminium to protect carvings held in a vice. Di also demonstrated an old electric toothbrush - now a mini sander. en followed an eye-opening session when members discovered what else their club mates get up to. ere were artists of many forms and media: embroidery, crochet, patchwork, acrylic and watercolour paintings, sketches, wood turning, jewellery, plus sports and showing shire horses! A fascinating evening was enjoyed by all. e club’s next social will be in December and include the results of the Wood Block challenge, so everyone is busy nishing o their masterpieces, all made from the same size blocks of lime wood. Regular evening workshops in a Noadswood School woodwork room are a vital part of the club. e committee is keen to keep these workshops in just one room, to maintain the great social side and exchange of ideas that takes place. So the committee has decided to have a waiting list in future to avoid overcrowding. is means that new members will be added to the list as existing members leave the club. ey understand that this may be disappointing for some people, but they believe that it is necessary to ensure that their workshops remain a positive and inclusive experience for everyone.
