Intermediate Turning

Intermediate Turning Classes

This is an opportunity for recent learn to turner graduates (and others) to expand your skills. Each of the classes will focus on one or two skills that are gradually more difficult and produce rewarding results.

The format will be essentially the same as our Learn to Turn experience. A demonstrator will show how to perform the project in sequential steps. Then the Intermediate Turner will complete that step under the guidance of our instructor group.

Class 1:

Making a lidded box featuring fitting the top and bottom of the box for a smooth, tight joint and a textured (spiral or otherwise) dyed and gilded top.

Class 2:

Making a jointed and beaded hollow form approximately 4” in diameter by 7 “ high.

Class 3:

Making an end grain natural edge bowl or platter.

Class 4:

Making off-center art forms.

All wood, tools and handouts for the projects that are required for the classes will be provided. The fee for the series of classes is only $220 which covers the wood, specialty tools and overhead on the shop. You must be a current member of NEOWTA to take the class.

There will be a maximum of 8 students for the class (minimum of 5 for the class to make) and the class will be filled on a first sign-up/first filled basis. Send an email to Jeff Bonem for more information.
