Learn to make a wooden bowl - Saturday 18th May 2019

Detailed description

If you're someone who loves using wooden objects at home, here is an opportunity to learn how to make a wooden bowl from scratch to use in your kitchen or wherever you like!

On the day, two attendees will be given an introduction into the art of Woodturning. With your own hands and a lathe, you will make a bowl from a piece of timber and at the end of the day take it home with you!

Woodturning is my passion which I have enjoyed over the last 25 years. On the day of the class, I will arrange two extra lathes to be set up and I will personally guide you through the process of safely setting up & operating a wood lathe. Then I will show you the techniques used to precisely create your own bowl along with some surface finishing techniques.
