Wood Turning: Shallow Plates 1W23
Create your own custom, hand-wrought vessels from wood.
Start with pieces of tree limbs and trunks, make them round and take off from there. Beginners 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.
Masks are required indoors. Vaccinations required for all eligible students.
