Segmented turning has something for everyone and Malcolm Tibbetts is the man to show you what it's all about. HIs class covers everything from the design to the execution of these fabulous works of turned art, with plenty of hands-on time to practice your new skills.
Mary May returns to the instructors bench, hot off her weekend class, "Basic Carving", to complete the journey as she leads her students through some of the classical carved elements from the 17th and 18th century. Join them as they meet and create flowers, foliage, and shells!
In the Apprenticeship class, Stephen Proctor spends 2 weeks sharing his unique perspectives on the craft of woodworking while his class absorbs a lifetime worth of tips, techniques, and experiences. That's a pretty good rate of exchange, as his students are quick to tell you!
This first weekend in September was jam packed with great information as we ran 5 classes. Not only did we welcome "Basic Carving with Mary May" and "Segmented Ribbons with Malcolm Tibbetts" to our shop, students also got to enjoy "Accent Your Home With Custom Curved Moldings With Gary Striegler", "The Business of Woodworking with Scott Grove" and "Architectural Restoration with Scott Grove". Like I said... Jam packed!
Gary Striegler is recognized nation wide as the authority on creative interior trim and decorative interior treatments. This week he brings that expertise to our shop as he steps his class through the process of making fireplace mantles and decorative framing. It's always amazing how much gets built in 5 days under Gary's tutelage.
Scott Grove's brings a number of innovative techniques and game-changing tips to his class this week. Look in as they learn to use his wavy veneer seaming and solid wood edging techniques to create this one of a kind table top.
