The introductory portion of the eight-week Turning Intensive and the one-week turning segment of the Nine-month Comprehensive course teach spindle turning, tool making, chisel sharpening, hollow vessel turning, offset turning, and carving on the lathe, among other skills. In a relatively short time, students learn the basics and begin to explore their own designs.
