Well, I managed to get back from Ireland despite the snow, only to find we had none in Colchester. We have, until today, missed it all. We now have some in Lewes, which looks very pretty, but since I am in the workshop today on photo shoots, I will be cold. I note a thread on the forum saying that i ...

Hello there, Well, once again, it is very cold in Lewes and I am sitting here with my hot water bottle. You may laugh but it is highly effective in keeping me warm, in addition to a cheeky hot chocolate. Anyway, enough about me. I hope you’re all well? I often wonder how turners keep warm in their w ...

I had a wonderful time at the Harrogate woodworking show last weekend and think that Ken Salter did a great job in the organisation of it. I always find that there are always lots of questions asked, and that was certainly true in the demonstration area I was working in. Five rotations each day for  ...

Good morning! I hope you are all well and have survived the terrible weather we’ve had lately? It has certainly been very windy and raining a lot here, but thankfully it has stopped today, just in time for the weekend. I will be spending the weekend, and this afternoon, flat hunting, unfortunately.  ...

I had an interesting weekend in as much as I, or rather, Tony Walton, removed some beech trees from my garden – long overdue for getting rid of – and then horror of horrors, the pergola that was near it had to come down too. This is the one that I wanted to remove to make way for the new workshop –  ...

Good afternoon, everyone! I hope you’re all well? I am reporting from a very blustery Lewes, East Sussex. It is a pretty grey day, but I am celebrating my birthday today so I enjoying being spoilt by my friends and work colleagues! I have already eaten lots of chocolate today as well as having indul ...

I am off to the workshop to make something for our new sister magazine – Making. We work closely as a group at GMC and that is not only important, but is vital in order to get things done. This also makes sure that we can get the best results for any given job. If you think about it, this is much th ...
