Marbleized Wood Plate 1F19
Turn a wooden plate on the lathe and then decorate it using Turkish-style marbling techniques. Start with pieces of tree limbs and trunks, make them round and take off from there. Beginners will learn basic lathe techniques while experienced students advance to the next level at their own pace. Wood will be provided in class; advanced turners may bring their own. Then decorate the bowls, creating beautiful swirls and mottling colors with marbling. Limit 8 students
Woodturning: Bowl Making will take place on Sunday December 8th from 9-1pm
Marbleizing will take place on Monday, December 9th from 6pm 9pm at our Annex on 253 Amory Street

“My pieces are all handcrafted to show the beauty that results when people and nature are in harmony. Teaching is a way for me to ‘pay it backwards,’ to do for students what my teachers did for me when I was a student.”
