Up to 2 students will learn how to make a single wooden bowl together from beautiful hardwood (one bowl per class of 1 or 2 students). I offer a selection of woods to choose from including cherry, maple, and other hardwoods purchased from me directly on the day of the class for $15-30. We will complete ONE finished bowl in 2.5 hours of hands-on instruction. NOTE! I can schedule this event any time or day - just let me know what day you want.
I have been a wood worker for over 40 years and have a fine arts degree in woodworking and photography. I have made furniture for many years and my home is filled with it. Over the last 16 years or so, I've been doing a lot of wood turning - making artworks and wooden bowls. The bowl making process that I teach usually starts with recently cut wood that is still wet. The finished bowl may change shape over several weeks as it dries so that it becomes oval or boat shaped. This unconventional process is part of the organic magic of working with green wood.

We will work in my solar powered workshop in Woolwich , and I will be happy to show you all of the renewable energy systems in the workshop in addition to making wood bowls. And I have a room available on airbnb (Renewable Rural Retreat in Woolwich), so you can stay over if you want.
最多可有2位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 I cannot accept children for safety reasons. But also you need to be tall enough and strong enough to safely use a wood lathe.
No loose clothing and rolled up sleeves, long hair must be tied back. I will provide all safety equipment and advice. Plan on getting covered in shavings! I provide a variety of woods for the bowl you make. A materials fee of $12 to $30 covers the wood blank - I take cash or credit.
