This will serve as a dedicated space to encouraging and assisting students in their pursuit of turning, sharing ideas and processes, and building our confidence and creativity. Students will be introduced to the Lathe involving safety demonstrations, knowledge about chisels and other tools involved with turning, and how they are able to cut and shape wood. Students will be honing their skills week by week and gain confidence with using the lathe. Over the duration of this 6-week course, students will create a series of projects such as candle holders, honey dippers, bud vases and more!
