Brookfield Craft Center and the Nutmeg Woodturners League teamed up to make bowls for the Beads of Courage charity.

Beads of Courage is an arts-in-medicine supportive care program for children coping with serious illness, their families and the health care providers who care for them.

This month, volunteers from the Nutmeg Woodturners went to the BCC’s woodturning studio for a Learn to Turn event where they produced bowls to be donated and used for the children’s beads.

The beads serve as symbols of courage and hope for the children along their treatment journey.

President Ken Rist of the Woodturners League said, “We are pleased so many of our members turned out for this event and we were able to turn out so many bowls.

We are grateful to be able to utilize the facilities of the craft center and to contribute our skills to this worthy cause.”

The Nutmeg Woodturners League is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.

They promote woodturning as a craft and art form.

The primary goal of the league is to educate members and provide a meeting place for local woodturners where they can share ideas and techniques.

They meet at the BCC on the second Monday of every other month, January through November.

All are welcome to join.
