Show & Tell

The full rules and information on our monthly Show & Tell competition are here.

January 2021:

Valentine’s Day – how could you incorporate that theme into wood turning? Engraving cupid, different wood coloured hearts, red colouring? You decide. It may even stop you forgetting to get that special someone something special this year!

Prize: G&S Specialist Timber £50 voucher and £50 of blanks.

February 2021:

Natural Edge – Whether it be a bowl, vase, or a whole host of other creations, the name of the game this month is to make something with a live/natural edge on a part of a piece. Instead of making this a feature on the rim of a bowl, how about trying it as a feature on a bead? How about including some segmented turning as part of it? The limit is your imagination (and how much bark you have).

Prize: Stiles & Bates £50 voucher and £50 of blanks.

March 2021:

Green wood warping – The end of March is typically the end of the copiccing season. This months theme tasks you to use green wood and use the drying process to create interest. Hats can be made this way by controlling the drying process. What spin can you put on it?

Prize: Turners Retreat £50 voucher plus a further £50 of voucher by Turners Retreat.
