The weekend of the 7th and 8th of October saw another successful course run by myself and Mark Sanger at Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, those who attended from left to right, Bryan, Dave, Viv and John all of whom have attended numerous courses with us over the last few years.
This particular course concentrated on the tuning of green wood with natural and thin wall projects being completed.
The subject of wood selection, orientation and turning were covered with each student producing a cross grain natural edge thin walled bowl, a rectangular/winged bowl and a natural edge goblet and a thin walled end grain bowl.
The course is fairly intense but every one is encouraged to work at their own pace and with two tutors we are able to offer the right attention for each student.
More courses will be run in 2015 so please contact me for more information in relation to the below courses. One to one course also available.
Available for 2015.
Bowl turning-one or two day course
