Hans Weissflog is Germany's top woodturner so we were thrilled to have his teach for us again. His class watched him do things no other woodturner is even attempting and then learned his techniques with his son and him by their sides.
Jeff Headley and Steve Hamilton are 4th generation furniture makers and have a lot to teach any class. This week they taught their students to make a gorgeous Federal Blanket Chest.
This week Clay Foster shares his mixed media approach to furniture and sculpture as his class dives into adding cast concrete components to their woodworking repertoire!

Andy Cole and his class spend an entire week delving into making every type of bowl imaginable on the lathe. His students eagerly embrace the Andy's techniques and tips as they expand their woodturning abilities.
It's always fun to kick off a week with a two week apprenticeship class and when Marc Adams is leading it, it is sure to be something to remember. With the help of the MASW staff everyone was exposed to aspects of woodworking they hadn't even considered yet.
