I’ve recently been arm-twisted, cajoled and railroaded into being the President of the Greater Vancouver Woodturners Guild (GVWG). It is an extremely active group with well over a hundred members, a great website, very informative monthly newsletter, a couple of different educational programs and attendance of 50 to 70 people at its monthly meetings.
One of my personal mandates is to introduce members of the maker community to woodturning in the hopes of attracting new members from a community that will bring fresh perspectives, culture and energy to the GVWG.
I’ve been watching with great interest as @mike has been creating a woodturning sub-group within the VHS. I would like to extend an invitation to all VHS members who have become interested in woodturning or are simply curious to check out our website and attend our next meeting on March 22nd at the Sapperton Pensioners Hall, which is about 2 blocks from Sapperton Skytrain Station. There is also free parking at the rear of the hall if you get there early enough.
