Training Day 11 May 19

 In Club Events


On Saturday 11 May 19 from 9am to 4:10pm, we held the first of two, one to one training days.  We had eleven people book in for either one or two hour sessions at a very cheap price of £5 per hour. Of those eleven, we had several complete beginners wanting to try something new and hopefully they will become future members.

We also had a few members taking the advantage of brushing up on their skills with our resident experts, Chris Fisher, Stuart Lowe and Peter Hallam.  Our thanks go out to those guys for running these sessions and bringing what looked like their whole workshops along to make sure they had what was going to be needed.

The day proved to be a success and there were some happy customers who left with the item they had made or learnt new skills to go and practice further on their own.  Several booked in for our next training day on 13 July.  Of which, the last few spaces are filling up nicely.

We have changed the timings slightly to give the turners a bit more of a break between sessions and slightly long tea breaks and lunch period, as it was along day to be stood up for on the lathes.

It would be good to see more members taking up these sessions in future, as it was put on specially for those not so keen on turning with an audience.


And lastly,

    I learned a lot in the two one hour sessions I had with Stuart and Pete , one to one is far better as I don’t feel embarrassed about asking the “stupid” questions that I would on club or hands on nights. You’ll never get better value for money than this so the take up of members was disappointing. These very experienced guys and Martin gave up their Saturday for you give them your support at the next one if possible. We have probably got the best club anywhere so let’s keep it that way and support the events that the committee arrange for us , which they always ask members if that’s what they want before arranging them, if members continue saying they do but don’t support them they will obviously stop. Well done guys it is very much appreciated by this member
