Covid-19 Update:

The committee is working towards offering on-line demonstrations to replace the cancelled ones. Members will be given more information about this by email.
Event from July are subject to change.




Members only!

The next SAW Club Night (opening at 7.00pm) will be an Interactive Remote Demonstration by Martin Saban Smith on Friday July 10th, starting at 7.30

Come and join the SAW Virtual Coffee Shop!

Opening times: Sunday at 3:00pm, Tuesday at 10:30am and Friday at 7:30pm, for about an hour each time. We plan to repeat these times each week.

We are running Zoom meetings at the above times, which I like to call a 'Virtual Coffee Shop', drop in, (with your own coffee, or other beverage of your choice :-) and drop out as you wish. If you have any woodturning related questions, there may be a member in the shop who can answer them. If you have turned something and would like to show it off, you can hold it up to your camera. We are also having short presentations from members (the last one was about pyrography) and mini tours of workshops.
Alternatively you can just come and listen to the banter...

If you know how to use Zoom, then join us in the Coffee shop at one or more of the times above.

If you are new to Zoom, and would like some (or a lot of!) help, or have a problem, then call Jennie (phone number on the last page of the Newsletter, or in the emails about joining Zoom, or on the member's map in Weybridge)
