DWT Annual Family Day in Blessington.
The annual Family Day, hosted in Blessington by the Doran family took place on 18th June. The weather was not too kind, but 21 people, young and older, turned out for an enjoyable afternoon of food, drink and demos. The "master of the skew" Peter Mulvaney, gave the benefit of his experience, and a few stories thrown in as well, in making various proportioned beads and coves followed by a very tall tea-light holder. Later in the afternoon, and after a few barbequed items (care of Stephen Coffey) everyone reconvened to watch Rich Varney make one of his pocket watches. There are more pictures, but here are a few: -
Tom Murphy adds some sparkle.
The June demo was given by Tom Murphy from the East Central Chapter. His theme was resin and wood and he gave an insight into how resin can be combined with wood in order to turn bowls and other regular items that woodturners make, but also items of jewellery.
