Pole lathe bowl turning

In-person course
Emma and S. - - #29971

A great day of turning with Ralf...

Seeing the bowl slowly evolve out of the bit of wood we initially installed felt great....Turning is definitely not as easy as he makes it look, but easy enough for complete novices to create something you can eat from and that – at least in the creators' eyes – actually looks very nice. Both of us woke up the next day very much wishing we could go back to turn another bowl.

I have recently had the pleasure of attending a 1-2-1 woodturning course with Ralf. Under his expert guidance and gentle teaching, I created a stunning wooden bowl that far exceeded my expectations for a first attempt! Ralf is a brilliant teacher and a wonderful host. His passion and skills for his craft are both addictive and inspirational, and he is a lovely guy! If you're looking for a wood turning course, I cannot recommend him enough.

My day turning with Ralf was exceptional. Ralf's intricate knowledge of bowl turning really helped to equip me with the skills and techniques to progress myself. I was able to get past some big hurdles that have been holding me back. Ralf is clearly passionate about his craft and is a very good teacher. As an experience I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone else learning how to turn. It was time and money really spent well.
