Description : This is a ten week (entry level) course consisting of ten 2 hour lessons based over eleven weeks. We will stop for one week which is mid term break. Attendance is important as the class is structured and progresses each week.
What to expect from your ten week course. As a complete beginner to woodturning you will be instructed with basic woodturning skills and techniques to get you started. We will cover Health &Safety, basic design and finishing. The class is structured, so the wood you practice on will eventually be turned into finished items. You will be using a woodturning lathe, which spins the wood around while you cut it to the desired shape with sharp woodturning tools.
In this course you will practice on soft woods and hard woods. A candle stick holder, a two piece lamp and an egg cup are the items you will make if you complete the course The items that you create are yours to bring home.
