More Matisho 2017

The whirlwind of the Matisho Memorial on Saturday with upwards of 50 people turning, carving, painting, watching and, visiting settled into a more zen state on Sunday.  Perhaps 20 members continued the fun of creative exploration and finished off much of what had been started on Saturday. The fund raising aspect of the event was highly successful with over $5,500 raised for cancer research.  A few pictures of finished projects are included below.

Matisho 2017

Around 50 people came out for our annual Turning for Cancer Research weekend.

There was a great selection of items on the silent auction table.  Some expensive items were donated by various companies and this is really appreciated in the efforts to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

You can click HERE if you have not yet donated.

Again this year we were happy that many students and young people came out to enjoy and learn about turning.

Alex was back from China and able to share her wealth of knowledge about marbling with anyone interested.
