Come and join me on a half-day woodturning lesson (9.30am until 1.00pm) held at Taylors Mirfled, Mirfield, West Yorkshire!!
This half-day course is designed for the beginner woodturner wanting to hone their skills at bowl turning.
The half-day will focus on making a small, deep bowl to maximise the understanding of hollowing, which tends to be a main sticking point of bowl turning. We will also discuss the pros and cons to using either recess and tenon chucking points.
Sharpening will be discussed briefly, but is not a main focus of the day. All tools and timber are provided, BUT if you own any tools I encourage you to bring them along for us to have a look at.
The course will begin promptly at 9.30am, so please make sure you are there in good time to settle in.
The order of the day is, briefly, as follows:
- Health & Safety in the workshop
- An explanation into the basics of bowl turning tools, with a brief discussion about sharpening
- Turning a small, deep bowl
PLEASE NOTE: I MAY NEED TO STEP IN AND HELP YOU FORM THE OUTSIDE OF THE BOWL IN ORDER TO HELP MOVE THE PROJECT ALONG
Please Note: The course will be quite intense and quite quickly-paced, so feel free to bring along a notepad for jotting things down. The course is limited to 3 people maximum to allow you the highest level of input from myself (it will only run with 2 people as a minimum).
We will have a tea/coffee break in the morning and the afternoon - although you can take as many additional comfort breaks as you wish!!
Please give two calendar weeks notice of any cancellations to allow us to try to replace your spot. Any cancellations (with the exception of severe circumstances involving either yourself of an immediate family member) within the two-week period will incur a fee of £35.00 which will be deducted from the course fee paid.
The course will only run with a minimum of 2 attendees. If this is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the course, in which case you will be offered an alternative date within 12 months of the original course date, or be offered a full refund.
Voucher bookings can only be moved and not refunded.
