Chris Pouncy Turning Tour 2018
There is a reason why woodturner Chris Pouncy tours Australia every year! Put simply, it’s because Chris, a true rock star of the wood world, delivers compelling demonstrations packed with info and entertaining patter. He is sponsored by the Robert Sorby tool company so their tools are featured however attendees keep returning because they love the expertise that Chris in turn loves to share.
This year the schedule is extensive, 17 sessions in 17 locations covering five states of Australia over two and a half weeks. That means you have more than one opportunity to see him in Tasmania, Qld, NSW, Victoria or South Australia.
As well as action packed demonstrations there will be door prizes, discounts and the opportunity to meet Chris at all tour stops.
Sharpening, basic bowl turning and hollowing, along with special tool and decorative techniques are topics he covers, although rather than focusing on set items, Chris tends to show people how to select the right tools for the job and how to get them to work the way they’re supposed to. Troubleshooting tips are always popular and each session includes time for attendees to ask questions. See the gig guide below for times, dates and locations.
All sessions are free to attend and sponsored by Carbatec, for more details see www.carbatec.com.au
