Ulster Chapter Seminar - 9th Jun 2012


Margaret Garrard from Yorkshire Margaret was drawn into woodturning after visiting a friend and trying her hand at turning in his shed at the bottom of the garden. She then became a member of the Jorvik woodturning club. This club influenced her in her early days as it provided her with challenges that would stretch her abilities, and they did, as she won many 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes at the competitions. Margaret then started to enter national competitions and won prizes there also. Margaret has gained her knowledge of woodturning from her club, further education classes and visiting shows and symposiums. She also won a first prize at the International woodturning exhibition at the NEC, which took her to la Moulin in France for some tuition with Mick Hanbury. Binh Pho visited England in 2005 and she, with others, spent three days with him. This time with Binh has influenced her work today and she is always interested in gaining more information about the art of woodturning.

New Site


Due to the vulnerablities in the old site software, leading to a number of hacks, I have moved everything to a new CMS - Drupal. Things should be a lot more secure now, and we should have no more issues !
