Well what can I say, other than a huge thank you to Helen Bailey. The Zoom session was, once again, a treat! If you missed it then, sad to say you did miss something really quite special.
Helen gave us a very comprehensive overview of her methodology from details of blank selection righ tthrough the turning, piercing and surface finishing techniques used to produce her stunning works of art.
I think everyone went away with things to think about and I know I picked up a tip on having several bowl gouges pre-sharpened when doing a thin walled vessel, however I think that I still won't be able to achieve those standards with or without 40 grit...
All of this is done in a series of workspaces that can only be described as immaculate...I've seen operating theatres with more mess!
At any rate it was a good night and it was very pleasing to see a few new faces in attendance along with the "regulars" the only problem we have is following that one.
If anyone wants to volunteer I'd be pleased to talk to you!
