Great Weekend with William Creighton

The Down Chapter had the pleasure of the company of Willie Creighton at the weekend. Willie gave a great demonstration on various aspects of spindle turning followed by turning a bud vase from branch wood.

The following day was split into 3 sessions with four people per session, in these sessions, with the guidance of Willie, we attempted to reproduce the vase from the previous evenings demonstration from branch wood kindly supplied by Tony Rea.

Everyone enjoyed the sessions and all had a completed vase to take home.

After the sessions ended, Willie paid a visit to our oldest member and President of the Down Chapter, Frank Fox.. Anyone who has been to Franks workshops is fascinated by them and will always remember their time there and no visit is complete without refreshments kindly supplied by Franks wife Anna.

That evening we held our annual dinner in the Burrendale Hotel with Willie as the guest of honour.
