Hans Weissflog has been making small boxes in Germany which have literally redefined what's possible on a lathe. This week he graced our shores to share some of that expertise with a sold-out class of excited woodturners. Nobody who attended will ever think about turning the same way again!
We are extremely glad to welcome back Mack Headley to MASW. This week he takes his class through an exploration of 18th Century Carving techniques and motifs. Mack is an excellent teacher and a true authority on period carving, as his student discovered through the course of this 5 day class.
This weekend our classes included "Shellac: The Forgotten Finish with Mitch Kohanek,"Making Straight & Curved Waterfall Edges With Michael Fortune" and "Building a Windsor Bench with Greg Pennington." Plenty of fun no matter what your interests!
We were very pleased to have Andy Cole join our instructor ranks and he brought a wealth of information about bowl turning to share with his students. They spent the week absorbed in all manner of bowls and the associated techniques. Andy was definitely a real hit!
Michael Fortune returns with all the details you need to know to enhance your furniture. His students learned how to add to the value of their furniture with techniques that are relatively quick and painless, but greatly add to the overall impact of the finished piece.
We're lucky that Mitch Kohanek is a regular instructor here at MASW. This week he is teaching a more advanced finishing course and his students got to learn a lot as they added decorative finishes to their skill set arsenal.
