Hollow Vessel Turning with Tim Yoder April 30-May 1, 2022
This course is for woodturners who want to learn how to create a hollow vessel. By breaking down the process into easily repeatable steps students will be able to turn and hollow their first hollow form. Topics will include shapes and function to mounting methods and hollowing tools. Students will learn the 1-2-3 method of hollowing a vessel which minimizes the chances of catches and wood failure. Understanding this method will allow students to safely create many different forms, which could be limited by your hollowing tool capabilities. Tim will demonstrate how to use those limitations to create a beautiful shape. Students will complete at least one hollow form each day. The first will be a standard vase form and the next day will be a Southwest pottery form. Articulated hollowing systems will be provided but students are encouraged to bring their own hollowing systems for personalized instruction. Extra wood blanks will be available from Tim for an extra fee.
