Successful open day for Woodturners
This year’s annual open day of the Cornwall Association of Woodturners took place in glorious sunshine at Wheal Jane last weekend.
The organisers were delighted with the level of support and attendance on the day which resulted in four new members joining the club, including two ladies, and almost £700 being raised for the Association’s chosen charity Children’s Hospice South West.
When the CWA found themselves without suitable accommodation, a perfect solution was found at Wheal Jane. In return for a peppercorn rent, the CWA agreed to refurbish an unused shed using their woodworking skills! The Association has held weekly sessions at Wheal Jane ever since, in addition to a series of successful open days.
Visitors to last weekend’s event were also interested to know more about the Wheal Jane site and the businesses and developments taking place here.
