Course Overview

Learn to express the excitement and joy of creating, shaping, and finishing beautifully elegant plates and platters on the lathe. Explore how to add fine detail to accentuate and reinforce balance within the overall form. Emphasis will be placed on proper technique, tool control and finesse, the nuances of sharpening, and creating fine finishes. We’ll explore form in depth, and focus on creating lasting, well-designed and crafted objects to be shared with others for generations to come. This course requires some prior experience in woodturning but is open to those working at a beginner level.
