Wood Turning Week: Bowls & Beyond - 1M19
Co-sponsored by Eastern Mass. Guild of Woodworkers
Take a full week in our wood shop and rise to a new level of skill, no matter your starting point. You’re encouraged to continue with Wood Turning Week Level II later in August. Turn wood into functional objects and art—bowls, platters, sculptures and more. If you wish, add surface decoration with color, burning and other techniques. All levels welcome. Limit 8 students

“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.”
