This 4-week session is particularly useful for the newer turner who needs to build their turning skills. In a directed lab format, students will be able to draw upon instructor experience and receive advice and instruction appropriate to their skill and interests.
This is a beginning level class for students with little or no previous turning experience. All aspects of beginning turning will be covered: lathe safety, wood preparation, tool selection and use, basic design, sanding and finishing. Students can expect to complete two bowls during the class. Registration closes June 22.
Here is your chance to work in 3 different mediums in one class! In 7 weeks each student will create multiple bowls and develop a new love of mediums they may never have tried before. Hurry… space is limited to just 6 students: the registration has been extended until June 22.
