This three-session class is a hands-on introduction to the art of turning wood on the lathe, covering lathe setup, operation and safety, carving techniques and tool sharpening. Instructor Alan Dorsey will guide you through the basics, with a special focus on decorative and functional furniture parts such as chair parts, table legs and finials to name a few. This class also provides a solid foundation for those interested in a range of turning projects such as pepper grinders, tool handles and pens. This class also serves as a prerequisite for our bowl turning class.
All materials and safety equipment are provided. Completion of this class allows you to rent open studio time to use the lathe to work independently on your own turning projects.
