MEMORIES FROM THOSE WHO ATTENDED FRIENDS' SCHOOL, SAFFRON WALDEN

Learning 3 – new

Angus Willson: As my Mum down-sized to a residential home I have a number of items returned to me. This lathe-turned fruit bowl was made from teak and polished with bees-wax. I have no idea in which year I made it. However, I do remember the very dusty woodwork rooms. I also have a pair of lime-coloured book-ends still in use. They have dove-tail joints, with rather a lot of glue, and a copper plate for a base.

Does any one else retain any artefacts or memories of making things?
