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). suitable for adults and teenagers 14+ Courses take place at my covered outdoor workspace.
