You will learn the techniques of good tool presentation, shaping a bowl using natural curves, aspects of safety and after lunch, you’ll learn how to finish your bowl flawlessly. And then, by the time the course ends at about 4:30pm, you will have a piece of work to be proud of.
Some of the bowl courses run on Fridays with the below colouring course running on the Saturday straight after. You could book onto both and make it a weekend of woodturning!
Learn how to successfully colour wood using the Intrinsic Collection wood dyes which includes a sample set of the Intrinsic Colours for you to take away.
I’ll guide you through how to get the perfect surface on which to apply the colours and demonstrate how to successfully blend the colours together for a glorious piece that will become the centre of attention in your home.
IMPORTANT: This course is aimed at turners who can turn a simple bowl in under and hour without supervision, and using gouges. It will not be possible to coach you through the turning of a bowl on this course. If you use carbide tipped tools, and can still turn a bowl in under an hour using them, you must bring your tools with you.
Enjoy the day turning a gorgeous goblet and learn about lines, form, the tools to use, how to use them and perhaps most importantly, how to finish it beautifully. There are currently no available dates for Goblet courses in 2019.
