2018 SCROLLSAW WORKSHOP

This year sixteen people attended our workshop, which is similar to the last two years.  Apologies were received from six previous attendees.  We are continuing to attract new participants with seven attending for the first time.  Those travelling the furthest were two observers, one from Whangarei and one from Wellington.

 Participants were more evenly balanced between Fretwork, Intarsia and Marquetry this time, with some who had been before trying something different.  

 The sales table was very well supported.  This is where most of our surplus comes from.  A special thank you needs to go to Jacob for his many hours spent preparing the wood and making up most of the kitsets and projects.  

Although it is nice to have a $$$ surplus at the end of the day, our prime objective is to promote scroll work as a Woodcraft by sharing the knowledge that Jacob has, and has been able to pass on to our Guild members, with as many people as possible.   

It gives us great pleasure, when we see the progress the attendees make during the day and also how much those who have previously attended have progressed.

For us another successful day with the attendees learning new skills, swapping ideas, making new friends and above all enjoying themselves.

REPORT ON FIFTH ANNUAL SCROLLSAW WORKSHOP

We were pleased to welcome scrollers from Hawkes Bay, Franklin, Waikato, Rotorua, and Whakatane Guilds/Clubs to this year’s workshop.
A total of twenty-two people attended. Topics covered included marquetry, bevel cutting, intarsia, compound cutting, as well as fretwork. Attendees were divided into four groups each with their own instructor.
Our instructors for the day were Jacob von Holzen, bevel cutting and marquetry, Barry Kenworthy intarsia, Russell Smith basket making and compound cutting, and Roy Tregilgas who took the less experienced attendees through a variety of fretwork starting with the basics.
Projects had been prepared for all the attendees with some groups all doing the same work at the same time, while other groups had a choice of projects.
This was a “full on” day, with all participants able to take home completed projects to show for their efforts.
Morning and afternoon teas and lunch were provided, it was a great day filled with learning new skills and the swapping of ideas with others with similar interests, and above all, it was a lot of fun.
