Do you have some large pieces of wood or highly prized blanks that you've been reluctant to cut, into knowing you are going to waste 80% of the wood? Have you thought about utilizing a coring system but don’t know which one to choose or the benefits or challenges you might face?
Then this session is for you!
The meeting begins at 6:45 in the NC State Crafts Center and will include the usual instant gallery (2 items) and critique, a raffle, and access to the WGNC book and video library.
WGNC pesident Steve Criscenzo and new board member Ted Ross will lead the demonstrations.
It is common for cancer patients to lose their hair while undergoing treatment. While there are many wig options available, there are not many attractive options for the stands that hold them.
We have an opportunity to create attractive hand-turned wooden stands to hold the patients' wigs and remind them that there are people who care about them and want to bring beauty into their lives.
WGNC would like to challenge each member to join us in our workshop on Saturday May 18 at the NC State Crafts Center to create and gift wig stands to local cancer treatment centers.
The Craft Center at NCSU has invited members of the Wood Turners Guild on North Carolina to exhibit their work in the front windows of the center. The exhibit will run from late May thought August.
Items on display can be priced for sale if desired. (Note that artists are responsible for paying the Craft Center a 25% commission for items sold as part of the exhibit.) If you are interested in being part of the exhibit, please bring your selected piece (one item) to the membership meeting on May 9. Forms will be available to provide information on your piece to be added to the display.
This is a great opportunity to display your art and provide positive exposure to our craft and WGNC.
