Keystone Woodturners is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. We share the purpose of providing education and information to those interested in woodturning. The Club was founded in 1996 and has grown to over 60 members. We meet monthly on the third Wednesday of the month. Check out the other tabs on this website for examples of what we and our members have been doing and for other information about the Club.
Our meeting this month will be held on Wednesday April 20, 2016 beginning at 7 PM.
April Meeting Agenda:
Welcome: Bob Zrebiec – President
Show and Tell
Our members bring in their latest work, describe how they made it and discuss the problems they experienced and how they solved them. This is always a great learning experience for all.
Demonstration – Air brush techniques by Joyce McCullough
Joyce is a resident of Warminster, Pennsylvania.
With a Cabinet Maker for a father and artistic mother, art, music, wood and power tools have always been a part of her life. Growing up in New Jersey, Joyce has painted, quilted, played various musical instruments, created wedding gowns, made stained glass lamps, sun catchers, and many other crafts but was not fulfilled until she started wood carving. In 1992 her husband, John had taken her to her first wood carving show in Abington, Pennsylvania . This is where she found her passion for sculpting in wood. Many artistic skills are needed with wildlife wood art to bring out the essence of the bird or animal. Joyce has received many awards including Best of Shows, and People's Choice honors.
Since 2005, she has taken her carving skills and applying them to wood turnings, sculpting, texturing and burning on vessels and bowls. While enjoying the challenge of realism the newest venture is to put her wildlife animals into the turnings while still capturing their natural behaviors.
Joyce is a member of the Delaware Valley Woodcarvers, National Wood Carvers Assoc., PA Guild of Craftsmen, Bucks Co. Guild of craftsmen, Bucks Woodturners, and the AAW
