Description of Jason Clark classes:

Sign-up online here for all-day hands-on classes.

Nov. 17 – Sunday (Beginner)

  • Beginner to Intermediate class (all levels):  Spindles, Beads, Coves

Class will consist of woodturning basics featuring both bowls and spindles.
The morning will be spent turning spindles with beads and coves focusing on cutting downhill, tool selection and usage, and why the direction of the cut matters.
The afternoon will be spent turning bowls and how the process of turning a bowl is related to turning beads and coves on a spindle.
Various chucking techniques will be covered as well as options for cleaning up the bottom of a bowl so that no evidence of how the bowl was chucked can be removed.

 

Nov. 18  - Monday  (Advanced)

  • Intermediate to Advanced Turners:  Saturn Bowl with offset ring

Students should be experienced and comfortable turning both bowls and spindles.  This is not a workshop geared towards brand new turners.  Students will spend the day making an ultra-thin parting tool followed by a Saturn bowl with an offset ring.  Students may also work on some multi-axis spindles if time allows.
