The Making of a Teapot

July 15, 2018 – July 21, 2018

Michael Gibson

The purpose of this workshop is for students to learn how to make a realistic teapot from the log to the finish. A strong emphasis is placed on form and quality. Participants will learn hollowing techniques, rotary power carving and put them into practice, with ample opportunity to express their own style. Tips and techniques are explored in making a teapot that could be applied in many other forms of woodturning. Lathe safety and basic skills required.


Michael Gibson is an Englishman who lives in Hoschton, Georgia and is a professional woodturner. He has been an instructor at Arrowmont and a featured demonstrator at several state and international symposiums in the U.S. and abroad including Canada, Norway, England, Turkey and New Zealand.
