Form, Form, Form: Shape and Structure in Green Woodturning
September 16, 2018 – September 22, 2018
During this workshop students will explore a variety of forms turned out of green wood. Beginning with the fundamentals of woodturning, participants will create their own projects and personal visions including bowls, spindles, off set turnings, end grain vessels, and others. Demonstrations will focus on techniques and tools. Students may bring their own gouges and turnings to class to learn different sharpening and bevel angles, texturing with gouges, and making simple embellishments. The goal is for students to leave class with a new set of skills, a variety of turned objects and vessels, and an understanding of what makes a good form. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $595
