Wood Turning Week: Bowls & Beyond

Wood Turning Week Bowls and Beyond

Co-sponsored with Eastern Massachusetts Guild of Woodworkers

Use the lathe to turn wood into functional objects and art – bowls, platters, sculptures and more. If you wish, add surface decoration with color, burning and other techniques. By spending a week with the lathe, you will rise to a new level of skill, no matter your starting point. Beginners will get started and make several objects. Intermediate and advanced participants will also make several objects, with a chance to push the envelope and attain new skills. All levels welcome.

Immerse yourself in craftsmanship, creativity and community through the Eliot School’s Summer Craft Intensives. Exchange ideas, inspire each other in classroom walkthroughs.
