Most of the time I speak to potential Students prior to their coming here to access their experience or lack of it so that I can plan the day to make sure they get as much as possible from it.
When James arrived this morning I had no Idea what experience he had or if he had any at all. Well it tuned out he had about 3 years experience and a day and a half of tuition with another Professional turner.
When I asked him what he wanted to do for the day he said he wanted to learn as much as he could possibly Texturing and colouring or Hollow form turning.
We settled for Texturing and colouring and make sure he had not picked up bad habits.
We quickly ironed out a few bad habits and then produced the bottom of a wide rimmed bowl .
After turning the bowl James created a wide rim and prepared it for texturing and colouring as the following pics will show.
We got through a lot today and as you can see it was well worth it very well done James
