Students will explore the processes for making traditional, inside-outside, and faux open-segmented ornaments. You will also learn how form and proportion are necessary for completing elegant heirloom turnings. During class participants 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.
