Wood Turning: Weed Pots

heather dawson weed potsUse various turning techniques to make one or more decorative pots. Weed pots are tiny vessels made to hold leaves, grass or small-stemmed findings. They can't hold water, so beauty can be found in the impermanence of the natural treasures you place in them. A variety of wood species will be provided; students may bring their own wood with the instructor’s approval. No prior turning experience needed;all levels welcome.
