The Art of Woodturning
On weekends, our shop becomes a woodturning school. All day classes are held monthly, year round, on Saturdays and Sundays.
Our students include hobbyist, artists, and tradespeople. Some are enthusiast beginners others experienced turners ready to improve their skills.
We provide each student with the safety equipment, an individual lathe and set of tools to use during the workshop. All project materials are included in the cost of the class.
Class size is limited to seven students.
The cost for the all day workshop is $165 (includes project materials, lunch and great donuts from our local bakery). We ask for a $50 deposit to hold your space (refundable up to one week prior to class).
There's a $20 discount for students who are members of local woodworking clubs. See our list of local clubs.
To register for a class, give us a call or send us an e-mail and we will help you find the right class for your interest and skill level.
