FLWT is hosting national turner Andy DiPietro (www.woodartforms.com) for our April monthly meeting. Mr. DiPietro is known for his elegant hollow forms with unique surface treatments and dyed colors and he will be speaking at a special Friday evening club meeting on April 20th. His talk that evening will be on his work and journey through woodturning along with his thoughts on evolving toward a personal style. On Saturday April 21st, Andy will be demonstrating his techniques for developing a pleasing shape, hollowing and coloring a vessel with dyes. The Saturday event will be an extended demonstration of all aspects of Andy’s techniques and there will be a lot of interesting information presented for turners of all levels.
Our Friday night meeting starts with a show and share at 6:00pm with a short business meeting and Andy’s lecture beginning at about 6:45pm. The Saturday demonstration of turning, hollowing and coloring will be from 9:00am until approximately 3:00pm. We will break for a short lunch during the day but the club will not be providing lunch so please come prepared with your own. The Friday meeting is of course free and open to all. The Saturday demonstration is also open to all and is only $35.
