No woodworking experience required.

We will begin this class by splitting fresh cut hardwood logs into half-round blanks. We will then rough-out our blanks into circles, mount them on the lathe, and, using various gouges and scrapers, learn to remove all the wood that isn’t part of the bowl within. It is an enormously satisfying process; particularly as wet wood is so much fun to turn. Our bowls will be relatively small (approximately soup/cereal bowl sized,) and, as they will be turned “green,” may be prone to some wood movement as they dry.

Tuesday, June 7th  |  10am - 4pm

Cost: $97.50 members; $117 supporters; $130 non-members
