The Carolina Mountain Woodturners were busy all day as they instructed visitors how to make a honey dipper on a mini-lathe. Sandra Rowland hosted a hands-on table where folks could construct a a landscape or abstract sculpture using wood scrapes - many of which were donated by Buzz Coren who creates beautiful, one of a kind laminated wood bowls. Sandra has been participated in Guild special events at the Folk Art Center. She said that in the past her activity table was mostly occupied by children, but in recent years she has found that all ages want to share in the fun and it has become much more multi-generational.
Thanks to everyone who made the day a success. Be sure to join us next month for Heritage Weekend, September 20 - 21, 2014.
