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 people who care about them and want to bring beauty into their lives.
If you can’t join the workshop but still want to contribute we need wood for the workshop. For each stand we need two 6"x6"x2.5" blanks and a 1.5"x1.5"x10" spindle blank, preferably of quality hardwood. Plan to bring them to our next WGNC Member meeting on May 9th.
Thanks and looking forward to working with all of you on this!
