Coldingham Gala Day 2013. Traditional woodturning.

Taywood Woodturning Club is hosting an open day on Saturday, May 2.

The event in the Scout Hall, Boyack Centre, in Monifieth is aimed to foster a greater awareness of the skills of woodturning, and to promote the craft locally.

Anyone, local or not, is invited to attend if they have an interest in the art.

It runs from 10am to 4pm and entry is free.

Visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of woodturning, view a display of members work (which will also be available for sale) and speak to club members who will be happy to answer any woodturning queries you may have, and also offer advice and information about joining the club.

The club is particularly keen to encourage younger members and women to join – they already have a few female members - but they would like more to balance their membership which is predominantly older males.

The club meets in the Scout Hall in Monifieth usually on the first Saturday of each month from about noon until 4pm.

There are talks and demonstrations from professional turners or club members, as well as regular hands-on days for beginners.
