On March 16th, Mike Paora shared his knowledge, experience and expertise in making art pieces from timber scraps. Never before have I witnessed an excellent example of - One man's scrap being another man's treasure. With Mike, creativity flows in abundance, evident from his master pieces. What a contribution to the environment! To see more of his and his partner Ruth's work, please visit Journey Studio on Bank Street, Whangarei.

An information filled evening, where Sue shared her experience in wood carving, explaining the story behind her projects, artistic forms, choice of wood, choice of carving tools, handling the tools, and keeping them sharp by honing them. She also explained a new avenue with wood carving by making them repetitive using Bronze cast. This was followed by a demonstration of basic carving techniques. Her talk and her projects are available on video at the club for members.
Shane demonstrated the use of Dremel, its various cutters and some of Shane's custom made cutters, do's and don'ts, followed by a display of slides of some of his projects. Details of these are available for viewing at the club.
Events at the club are blogged by either the Secretary or the Treasurer, summarising the club's activities.
