It’s Never Too Early For Ornaments
March 26, 2019 – March 29, 2019
The purpose of this workshop is to explore the processes for making traditional, inside-outside and faux open-segmented ornaments. Students will also learn how form and proportion are necessary for completing elegant heirloom turnings. During class you will turn thin, delicate finials and create an ornament that only appears to be segmented. Several species of wood, plus banksia pod, will be used. You will also discover precise measuring, tool techniques and sharpening, color choices, decorating and creativity. Students will produce at least three heirloom ornaments plus several practice turnings and a huge sense of accomplishment. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $450
