Join us for the first in our ‘Back To Basics’ series. In March, we have our first in the series with all our stores focusing on Hammers. Our in-store experts will provide a detailed demonstration of all popular hammer styles - describing their unique features and use in a variety of applications. We’ll look at the materials used in the manufacture of heads and handles and consider characteristics such as weight, balance, grip and striking action. Don’t miss this chance to get ‘hands on’ with a wide range of some of the world’s best-known hammer brands - as we go back to basics with these very familiar yet seldom explained hand tools.
For the first time we would like to welcome Chris Fisher 'The Blind Woodturner' to the North Shields store
Chris is one of only three totally blind woodturners on the professional woodturning scene and he will be demonstrating turning techniques on both Saturday and Sunday in store.
Chris produces some fantastic work and his story is truly inspirational, proving that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Chris will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and will demonstrate turning techniques that he has developed over his relatively short time in turning.
This will be an amazing weekend of woodturning and should not to be missed.
In April, we feature the second of our Back to Basics series as we take a closer look at one of the oldest and most trusted tools in the woodworker’s chest - the hand saw. Still a favourite of skilled trade professionals, hand saws provide precision, speed and convenience which often rivals the performance of power saws. Throughout April, we invite you to rediscover the versatility of hand saws at special workstations in our stores and to attend any of our national demonstrations on Saturday 28th, hosted by our in-store experts. Please feel free to drop into this demonstration at any time between 10am - 4pm - we’ll be serving up bite-size Back to Basics info throughout the day!
