Caloundra Woodworking Club Open Weekend
The Caloundra Woodworking Club is once again holding their annual open days on Saturday and Sunday October 28th and 29th 2017, at their club house in Ulm Street South, Caloundra, also accessible through 9 George St, between 9am and 2pm. It is a time when the Club members showcase their craft, and many excellent items may be purchased in the sales area.
The Club has been in operation for 20 years and has seen many good woodworkers pass though its doors. What is generally not realized is that many of the members who have joined and are still there started off as rank amateurs and learned their skills from others in the club.
"The club members are not judgmental in any way. Most know that they too started off as novices and were helped along the way" Lola said . "The club has many men and women members who enjoy creating something from soft and hard Australian timber. There is a pleasure is saying with happy enthusiasm "I made that!" It gives everyone a sense of achievement."
Lola is Club President and speaks with a noticeable pride of all of the members of the club and their work and the common feeling that there is a jovial cooperative approach to all of the club's activities.
The Club will be open on both days of the 28th and 29 October and all visitors will be welcome. Gifts can be purchased, and as Christmas is fast approaching, there is the opportunity to buy that something different for somebody special. All items are made locally by members of the club. Among the items for sale, you will find SOMETHING FOR EVERY TASTE, VERY REASONABLY PRICED. There is also a monster raffle each day with dozens of hand made prizes each raffle. If your number is drawn, you pick your prize from the raffle table.
