Turning Wave Bowls & More with John Beaver August 8-12, 2022

John’s signature “wave” bowls are super fun to make and this class will show students two different ways to make them – but John will teach and show so much more. Students will begin cutting apart dry blocks of wood, bending wood to make curves and building designs to be turned. Next will be a progression of safely cutting apart turned bowls (vertically, horizontally and with curves), add to or modify the elements, and reassemble the pieces with the walls and grain aligned. Once assembled, the “wave” effect will have a huge “How did you do that?” factor, which will be fun to take home and show off to all your friends. John will show students the importance of form as well as many of his tips and tricks that can help students solve their own design problems. Everyone will work at their own pace making a few finished pieces from John’s repertoire or try new techniques that they learned during the week. John encourages students to use his techniques to come up with ideas of their own.
