The Company will hold a reception at Apothecaries Hall at 6.30 pm, after the Court meeting on that day. This will be an opportunity for you to welcome the new Master, David Batchelor, if you have not already done so. You are also encouraged to bring friends and family with you, particularly those who may be interested in joining the company.
As you know the sun always shines brightly and warmly on our Summer Reception so we will again enjoy wine and canapés in the special atmosphere of the Apothecaries’ Hall courtyard. However, should the weather not be as hoped we will adjourn to inside the Hall. The Master has arranged for a turning demonstration to be given by Carlyn Lindsay:
I am delighted to tell you that Carlyn Lindsay will be demonstrating the techniques and skills involved in her work. She will demonstrate both how she assembles the decorative woodblocks she uses and then show how different patterns emerge in her work as she turns those blocks. Most of us who turn are delighted and intrigued as the pattern of the grain emerges. In Carlyn’s case she is a little more in control of events! Anyone who has met Carlyn will know how enthusiastic she is. I know her demonstration will make it an enjoyable evening. I hope to see you there. David Batchelor, Master
The cost is £37.50 per person. I look forward to seeing as many of you and your guests as possible after all, the more the merrier!
