The December Meeting will be our traditional holiday pot luck dinner with a review of the year just past, an interesting video presentation and a members work exchange.

Todd Hartzell will supervise the exchange and all members are strongly encouraged to contribute a piece of their work. The club will furnish Ham and Turkey and condiments as well as cutlery, plates and napkins.

You are encouraged to bring a hot dish, salad or dessert to fill out the menu and share your “home cooking” skills. Families of all ages are welcome to attend.

WGNC Artist Exchange: Please bring in one or more of your woodturned items to be exchanged with other participating artists. The more items we have in the exchange, the more fun it will be. Collect one ticket for each item you bring.

  • As you come into the meeting room there will be a table to put all your exchange items
  • Ask Todd for a ticket for each item, you keep part 1 and part 2 will be in the drawing
  • During the meal we will be drawing Artist Participants ticket to go up to the table and pick your favorite Art Piece
  • Drawing will continue throughout the holiday meal until all items are claimed

    Your exchange items do not have to be something you turned recently, just something you have made, that you are willing to part with in order to select another artist’s work for your collection.

    The board would like everyone coming to the holiday event to participate with at least one item, so everyone goes home with something new

    Note: There will be no demo, raffle, library, gallery, or critique at this meeting, but board members are planning a slide show during the meal. Library returns from last month will be due in January.

    If you attended our meeting last July, you watched our screening of an AAW National Symposium Techniques DVD. During desert at our December meeting we will present more of these edited demos for your viewing pleasure-all are created by highly skilled turners pursuing their passions. Most likely titles shown will be: Spiked Star inside a Cube, Spiral Work, Turning a Suspended Box, and Old Style Tokyo Tops.
