October 2022 – Urushi

2nd Saturday of October (9 Oct) at 1PM.

Briefly, since your webmaster failed to take notes, October’s meeting was held on zoom and member Bryan shared his ventures into working with urushi and experimenting on several pens. It is very slow to dry, apparently, and he’s innovated a drying box to slowly rotate the pens while it cures to keep the coating even. Also, did you know it’s related to poison ivy? We are hoping to see his work in person at the hub or at the Pen Bazaar in November!
