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 are running Zoom meetings at the above times, which we 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 the camera in you computer. We are also having short presentations from members (previous ones include pyrography and string steadies) and mini tours of workshops.
Alternatively you can just come and listen to the banter...
If you are new to Zoom, and would like some (or a lot of!) help, or have a problem, then call Jennie Starbuck (phone number on the member's map, look in Weybridge).
