Turned, Burned And Carved

July 26, 2020 – August 1, 2020

Michael Lee

In this workshop students will explore the possibilities found in the turned form. You will turn forms on the lathe using a variety of different techniques. Class discussions will include bowl and hollow turning, sharpening and honing, the use of power carving and various carbide burs, pyrography and milk paint to further enhance the turned form. Participants will go beyond the visual and discover how the tactile qualities can raise the level of their work. You will share ideas while making shavings and having fun. Open to all skill levels.
