Day 269: Pole lathing

            • Navy cardi: Marks and Spencer
            • Striped T: Gap
            • Grey skirt: Marks and Spencer
            • Tan shoes: Clarks

I stayed down in London an extra day to attend the Worldskills conference at the Excel in London. Wow what an event. This is like the olympics for skills and had thousands of young people demonstrating and competing in various skills from fashion design, construction, welding to mechanics. In conjunction with partners we had a stand celebrating traditional heritage skills and here I am having a go on the pole lathe which is a traditional way of turning wood for making things like chair legs. Lots of fun!
