Next Steps in Turning
Beth designed this course as a next step for students who have already completed an introductory turning course. She introduces a series of exercises and projects at the start of the week to advance participants’ skills in spindle, faceplate and hollow turning. She also encourages students to bring projects with which they need help.
While Beth’s instruction focuses on techniques, she also encourages students to discover and exercise their creative voices. Sharpening is a constant topic, as is safety. In addition, participants learn to make specialized tools that resolve woodturning problems.
