Worshipful Company of Turners Competition 28th October at Apothecaries Hall.

This was my first trip to this competition held every two years; it alternates with Wizardry in wood.

The venue is impressive as were the entries. It was very nice to know so many of the exhibitors not only just in the APT category.

Note the stool entries – well done to John Burbage 1st and 3rd place and Katie Abbott in 2nd place.

I was struggling to get any good pictures of the awards ceremony and I thank Stuart King for this one of David Batchelor (chairman of the Howe committee) receiving his ward for the novice category from Fionna Woolf the Lord Mayor.

Stuart King always brings a table of very interesting turned item from around the globe – note the animal profile turned in a ring from traditional German toy makers.

It was great to see John Fells again since his move south east. He entered the goblet competition - his were too small to photograph! about 5mm tall from segmented wood. He also had a piece in the AWGB mobile exhibition.
