    Do you have a beloved stringed instrument in need of some TLC? Tucker Barrett can help. After nearly 25 years of designing and building electric violins, violas and cellos, Tucker is no longer accepting orders for new instruments. He is now dedicating his time to the repair and restoration of vintage and contemporary acoustic and electric guitars and other stringed instruments.

    Set-ups and fretwork are his specialty. His experience and general understanding of how guitars function and change, especially in New England, allow him to improve the feel, playability and intonation of almost any instrument, whether used or new.

    How it works: Drop by HatchSpace with your instrument; Tucker will assess its condition and guide you through any next steps towards repair and restoration. Please limit the number of instruments brought in for consultation to (2). There's no limit to the number of observers however; come and chat and watch Tucker work!


    Trained and apprenticed under Ken Parker at Stuyvesant Music on 48th Street in NYC, he has been privileged to build custom guitars for such musicians as Pete Townsend, Andy Summers, Lou Reed, and Nile Rodgers, as well as many other professional and amateur musicians. He also repaired, maintained and set up guitars for many top groups such as the Pretenders, Foreigner, The Cars, The Police, and Joan Armatrading.

    Instructor: Blake Johnson

    Blake started his woodworking career in a teaching environment, at art college, and hasn’t let that learning/teaching thing go ever since.  He has built scribed log playgrounds, museum casework and exhibits, furniture, and renovated houses.  He appreciates making for himself, and loved ones, objects that evoke joy and character for years to come. He loves the process of making things, the mental machinations, the problem-solving, and the many discoveries that come while working with a natural material. Each project becomes a process of getting to know the work, the wood, and in some ways, a bit of himself. This sense of empowerment and responsibility to a personal environment is something he hopes to spread in every place where he works. Some photos of his work can be seen at www.heartsparkarts.com and on Instagram at @runeshai.

    When you want your joints and finished surfaces to come out just right, there’s no substitute for tools with a perfectly sharp edge.

    Learn. In this class, students will learn how to create and maintain sharp edges on chisels and plane irons. We’ll start with a bit of theory, and introduce the basic tool kit, but most of the time will be devoted to turning neglected edges into gleaming blades. Students are welcome to bring their own tools and waterstones, but the HatchSpace will also have on hand everything needed for the class.

    Itinerary

    10am - 1pm | Spindle Turning: The Foundation of Woodturning

    1pm - 2pm | Lunch Break 

    2pm - 5pm | So You Want To Turn A Vessel


    Spindle Turning: The Foundation of Woodturning:
    Bob will explore how design affects what we make, and how design principles can be applied to your tunings. He will demonstrate his approach to spindle turning and how he has incorporated pencils and other objects into many of his works. He will also explain why he believes spindle turning is at the root of all turning, and why he thinks it holds so many possibilities for creative expression.

    He will show how he prepares the blanks, holds them on the lathe, and the cutting and finishing techniques he uses to complete the pieces.

    Key Points Covered:

    - Material selection and preparation
    - Work holding on the lathe
    - Safe and proper use of spindle gouges, including the spindle-roughing gouge
    - How to sharpen your tools
    - Incorporating found objects such as pencils, erasers, epoxy, etc.
    - Finishing techniques (dyes, scorching, other materials, surface finishing
    - Using a HVLP spray system and how to get a quality surface on your work

    Lunch Break: Participants are invited to bring a lunch to HatchSpace, or go out for lunch in downtown Brattleboro. 

    Afternoon activities: Bob will be discussing the bowl & other vessel forms and possible shapes folks may want to make, design, form and shape. He'll also discuss the difference between art & craft (as he sees it) and much more. His presentation will be followed by a demonstration of end grain hollowing using a boring bar with a laser measuring system.

    Please join us for this very special event! Questions? Please contact info@hatchspace.org for more information.

    Robert Lyon’s interest in architecture, especially the cylindrical forms of Italian architect Aldo Rossi, small granaries from the Ivory Coast, and the ancient towers of Iraq, led him to his interest in circular forms. From Robert's Artist Statement:

    My early work with pencils originates from an interest in memory. My mother had died, and she had suffered significant memory loss during her illness. Her dementia made me confront the fragility of our brain and how easily decades of recollections and thoughts can be erased. Working in my sketchbook, and experimenting at the lathe, I began to realize that graphite and erasers would make good visual metaphors for the way our brain works. A mark made with graphite is like our memory, easily smeared or erased, never permanent.

    Some of my pieces play off my observations as a beekeeper, as the pencils in cross-section have been grouped together so they take on a honeycomb pattern. In the others, I have experimented with encasing, sawing, and splitting pencils and their erasers. In these works, the pencils echo patterns such as the vertical structure of the vessels and the cellular structure of the wood, along with abstracted patterns of the interiors of the pencils themselves. Additionally, I’m an avid student of the guitar, and it has been pointed out that some of the patterns, especially those comprised of pencil parts and their erasers, resemble patterns that occur when I’m visualizing mode and arpeggio patterns that occur up and down the neck. - Robert Lyon
