David: the links in the flyer are not "clickable" - can you provide them separately, please?

Claude,
yes we have found that out! So many people have been involved in the drafting, the links have got lost in translation, so to speak!

This is the showreel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yTgGmT2EvE
Biog is a PDF file which opens OK. on my laptop. I would upload it but the Forum has not been updated to allow a wider range of file types for upload - I'll mention that to Mark when I see him.

Will post biog as a separate reply.

David

We have had issues with the links in the original posting-our apologies for that. We have shown the link to the showreel in this thread and here is a biog for Mr & Mrs Zenreich:

Zenreich remote demonstration information at Cheam Woodturners, 19th June 2019
Here are some frequently asked questions about our demonstration:
1.What demonstrations do you offer?
a.Our main two person demonstration is eccentric jewelry turning… details and bio are below, along with some attached photos
b.Lauren also does one that is a deep dive into embellishing with ink
2.What is the general format of the demonstration?
a.It is a “tag-team” format where Lauren and I switch off with our content, and often show the other’s video in a PiP (picture in picture window)
b.Take a look at this little excerpt from a session we did a few months ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yTgGmT2EvE
2.How much does it differ from a live demonstration?
a.It doesn’t differ much at all… we can see and hear the audience, and they can see how we actually work in our shop and studio.

Eccentric Jewelry Turning - Making Pendants
Why hide your turnings on a shelf? Turned jewelry is displayed proudly to many, many people. Pendants are a pleasure to wear, and to create.
Alan and Lauren Zenreich show the tools, techniques and procedures used to make their wood turned jewelry. They will be demonstrating from their shop and studio in New Jersey, via a live, interactive video connections, so you can see and hear them and they can see and hear the club members.
Topics include:
Layout and preparing of blanks for turning
Affixing work to an indexable offset backing plate using turner's tape
Multi axis positioning to facilitate boring holes and scribing lines
Turning the pendants, cutting arcs and beads, smoothing adjoining eccentric surfaces, cutting beads and preparing the work for finishing
Using the turnings as a canvas by incorporating semi-precious stones and beads, pyrography, archival inks and other embellishments in the pendants and necklaces.
Assembly techniques for inserting pins and jewelry findings

Claude,
I don't think the session will be online but the past ones are up on Youtube. Check the AAW or Zenreich accounts on there and you should be able to find it.
