Spiral and Straight Carved Vessels
August 4, 2019 – August 10, 2019
In this workshop students learn how to select material suitable for carving and to hollow the vessel to the required wall thickness. You will study factors to consider when deciding the number and width of segments for a vessel then carve, shape and sand the segments. Other topics covered include texturing (including burn texturing), finishing and making of feet, collars and turning finials. This class is best suited for intermediate to advanced students, but most woodturners will benefit.
COURSE FEE: $675
