Texturing and Specialty Enhancements of Wood Turnings

August 11, 2019 – August 17, 2019

Peggy Schmid

This workshop explores techniques for creating textural elements on a turned platter or bowl. Students will turn bowls and platters with a focus on designs that highlight a textural element. You will make texturing tool bits to better understand the profiles that you can create and use a variety of texturing and carving tools to make a unique pattern on wood. Participants will utilize color and dyes to highlight elements of the turned pieces and show the effects created with layering textures and painted elements. Previous turning experience is required.


Peggy Schmid is a professional woodturning artist who lives in Cumming, Georgia who teaches and holds demonstrations across the country. She is a graduate of The Atlanta College of Art (now Savannah College of Art and Design) and studied Art Education at Georgia State University. Schmid is noted for turning platters with a textural element and for faux metal finishes. Her work is in corporate and private collections and has won several awards.
