George Flavell in Rotorua 2010
On September the 18th George Flavell visited Rotorua to give an all day demonstration of woodturning combined with some wood carving.The hosts were the Geyserland Woodworkers Guildwith a lot of additional support from Tauranga Woodcrafters Cluband Whakatane Woodcraft Club.The day started at 9.00 and finished at 4.00pm with lots of turning and eatingbetween.
In total there were 37 keen turners came along to see a very gooddemonstration by George. What a privilege it was to watch and hear George. This man gave us so muchmore than a demonstration of turning and carving,we learned so much of his culture, his spirituality,of how his designs each tell a story.
We all went home very happy and keen to try some of the things he had done.
