Nick Agar gives a master class at Joe Laird woodturning studios 2012

After last year’s successful 3 day Master Class with Nick Agar we are delighted to have this incredible wood turning artist back to our shores once again.

Nick will be delivering a two day Master Class on 23rd and 24th of April 2013. He will repeat the class again on 25th and 26th also. The theme on these classes is mainly air brushing and only a small part will be allocated to wood turning. You will turn your own platter and will then decorate it air brush style under the tuition and guidance on Nick.

As always you will have your own work station and all equipment will be supplied for the classes including air brush and paint. If you have your own tools and air brush you are welcome to use them. All you have to do is turn up and we will look after the rest. Places are limited to 6 people per class so book early to avoid disappointment.

Cost of the two day class is €300 per person including lunch and materials. Contact Joe for more details or to make your booking.
