Demonstration by Colin Simpson

On 23rd April we were lucky enough to welcome professional turner and good friend to the club Colin Simpson for his first Demonstration since before Covid, and it turned out, what he tells us will be his last ever Demonstration, so we were particularly honoured. He treated us to his usual, humorous and hugely informative style and covered a number of topics from tool presentation and avoiding catches, via thread turning to finishing techniques, along with a short discussion about using colour. The level of comments and questions posed showed how engaged we all were by his knowledge and skill. Despite not demonstrating any more, we hope we will still see him at the club again. Many thanks Colin!
