Bowl Turning Simplified with Jason Schneider June 13-17, 2022

Woodturning is an immediate process that can result in a functional object in just a couple of hours. In this one week beginning bowl turning workshop, students will learn how to safely turn a functional bowl from green and kiln dried wood. Once the wood is selected, students will learn how to mount the wood on the lathe, then select the proper speed to turn. Using only the bowl gouge, students will begin the process by shaping the outside of the bowl. Jason will then demonstrate a reverse mounting method to turn the inside of the bowl, then reverse once more to trim the foot. In this workshop, emphasis will be placed on shape and form while creating functional “open” bowls. Each student will leave with many bowls and platters, and techniques as well as the confidence to safely turn green wood.
