The Joy of Woodturning
March 18-24, 2012
Scandinavian Heritage Week
Instructor: Phil Colson
Tuition: $568.00
Starting with a basic vessel or bowl, help it evolve into a unique form through textures, color, and even a little fire. Scandinavian designs may inspire your work. Discover how to play again, thereby tapping into your creativity. Enhance your techniques of working at the lathe, so that it becomes more like play. It all starts by saying "What if"? Be prepared to laugh, especially at yourself. All levels welcome, but some woodturning experience is recommended to benefit most.
