This week teaching was challenging for both the teachers and students because of the hot weather. But nothing can stop the thirst for learning a new skill for a creative mind.
Thursday-Friday 11th-12 August
On Thursday and Friday Martin held a Beginners 2 Day Group Course in our learning Centre. This particular course is ideal for those who have taken up turning and looking to learn the basics. During those two days students are able to learn in depth basics of spindle and bowl turning, sanding and finishing techniques, as well as sharpening the tools. By the end of the two days every student has three projects in their hands, which are the budvase, the bowl and the lidded box.
