Pole lathe bowl turning day one to one

X

Description

Come and learn how to turn a bowl on a foot powered bowl lathe. This type of lathe was commonly used from the Viking era through to medieval times and beyond, and is currently seeing a massive surge in popularity. Turning in this way means that the maker can be completely in control of the speed, no dusty or dangerous machinery is needed to produce bowls. Another benefit of getting into foot powered turning is that lathes and tools can be homemade cheaply, and can be used where electricity is not available. Learn about wood selection for making a bowl from green (unseasoned) wood.

A general level of fitness is needed ( turning requires a similar energy expenditure to walking up hill). Courses take place at my covered outdoor workspace.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

I had wanted to try my hand at bowl turning for many years and this was a perfect introduction. Amy is a great teacher, very patient and totally enthusiastic about what she does. Everything was ready when I arrived and we went right through from shaping the wood with an Axe to finished bowl in the day. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn to turn a bowl using a traditional pole lathe.
