Improvisation In The Round: An Introduction To Woodturning
May 24, 2020 – May 30, 2020
Woodturning offers the craftsperson a joyful immediacy that is unlike any other kind of woodworking. In this workshop students will learn the technical skills they need to unlock the unlimited creative potential of the lathe. The class will focus on tool sharpening, safety, mastering the basic cuts, and good form and design. You will build confidence and refine your technique with ample hands-on practice as you complete a variety of turned objects such as mallets, cocktail muddlers, bottle stoppers, bud vases and bowls from both kiln-dried and green wood. Open to all skill levels and geared towards the beginner. No prior woodworking experience necessary.
COURSE FEE: $675
