It’s Never Too Early For Ornaments

March 26, 2020 – March 29, 2020

Janice Levi

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.


Janice Levi is a retired drama teacher and alternative school counselor living in Central Texas. She has been turning wood for 19 years and has presented at both regional and national symposia as well as clubs across the nation. Levi is known for her purses and jewelry but also enjoys turning heirloom ornaments, many of which are enhanced with pyrography and color. She also frequently writes for several woodturning magazines.
