Saturday, May 16 the Hillsdale Library hosted a FREE pen turning workshop. Individuals who signed up for this event learned how to use a Lathe and made their own cross-style wood twist pen! On exhibit in our share space are some beautiful wood-works created by the Hudson Valley Woodturners Association.
“Hudson Valley Wood Turners (HVWT) is a chapter of the American Association of Wood Turners. HVWT is based in Pascack Valley. At each meeting of HVWT a wood turning skill is demonstrated and attendees are given the opportunity to apply the lesson to a new project. Membership in Hudson Valley Wood Turners is open to people of all ages interested in wood turning. No prior experience in turning is necessary. Visitors are welcome at the meetings. Meetings are typically held the third Thursday of the month in the evening at the Education Building of Ramapo Reformed Church, 100 Island Rd, Mahwah NJ (at the Ramapo Avenue exit of Route 17). ” For additional Information, check out their website!
