In this fun and affordable single-session class, you will learn how to turn a bowl — from wood selection through final finishing, and everything in between. We focus heavily on technique, safety and proper tool usage throughout the class, and the best part is that you leave our shop with a beautiful hardwood bowl in your hands to display proudly!

Looking for a relatively inexpensive route to woodworking? Turning is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to get involved in woodworking. You only need to purchase (or borrow!) a lathe and a couple of basic tools. In this class, we will discuss a variety of key features one should look for in a lathe, the tools required to get started, and the fundamentals of lathe use. Students will practice turning a series of coves and beads before completing an assigned project.
This is a Level One class. No experience is required.
