Martin Saban-Smith Improvers Bowl Turning Course

From: £135.00 inc VAT

Martin is known for his bowl and face turning and on selected dates in 2022, you can join him on one of these new improvers bowl turning days. On the day, you will be guided through different techniques whilst turning a bowl from start to finish.
Already having some experience in bowl turning, this is an ideal course for you to improve your turning skill as Martin explains bevel angles, mounting options, proportions, dealing with common problems and more in his relaxed style of teaching. Course notes are also available at the end of the day.
At the end of the day, you will take home your creation and fresh knowledge to put into practice at home.
