Padraig has generously offered to sharpen tool for members before and after the workshop and have a chat with them re the finer points of getting a keen edge.
This is a great opportunity so get there early or hang back afterwards if you are interested.

Happy New Year to all the members of the Cork Chapter from the Chapter Committee and the new admin: Ger and Stephen.
Its a new year and the calendar is full for the Cork Chapter. Everyone on-line should have a copy by now. For those not on-line there will be copies of the Calender available at the Workshops.
Our first Workshop (20th Jan) is at Padraig Mac AnFhaillghig in Dromahane overlooking the beautiful Blackwater valley. In a short few months (21st April) our Annual Seminar with Kieran Reynolds will be at a new venue The Cotton Ball - check out pinterest.ie for beautiful shots of Kieran's work. And its never too early to put your name down for our 'Gone Fishing' with Peter Manning in Ballycotton (27th June) - a lovely social outing with a bucket of fish to boot.
Plenty more going on each month so put that Calendar somewhere where you can see it and plan ahead if you can.
Keep the wood secure, the chisels sharp and the shavings thin and most of all have fun.
