About the Course

This two day course is designed for those who wish to explore the art of turning hollow forms using wet wood.

You will learn my technique for hollowing which simplifies the control of the wall thickness reducing the risk of destroying the piece. Learning different methods of sanding and finishing as well hints and tips on creating perfect hollow forms.

The course will cover: the recognition, selection, sourcing and harvesting of suitable timbers that have no commercial value other than firewood.

You will be shown: how to cut and prepare with a chainsaw; the safest and most secure holding methods on the lathe; How to use and exploit the versatility of the Ellesworth or Celtic grind bowl gouge. This wonderful tool will become your "go to" tool helping you achieve simple proportion, shape and form, giving you control and your work a whole new elegance.
