Put A Lid On It

October 25, 2020 – October 31, 2020

Sally Ault

In this workshop students will turn lidded containers in many shapes and sizes from a very small pill box to a large lidded bowl. The focus is on creating good form that is functional. You will explore different lid styles and create the proper lid fit for the function of the container. Participants will explore a variety of knobs, handles and finials and experiment with textures and embellishments to transform the containers from ordinary to awesome. Some turning experience is helpful, however open to all skill levels.


Sally Ault lives in San Diego, California. She has been turning for 19 years focusing on turning boxes and containers, because of their mystery. Ault teaches at turning clubs and symposiums. She is the vice president of Programs for the San Diego Woodturners and a member of the American Association of Woodturners and Women in Turning. Her work is shown in several galleries and has won many awards.
