This class will look at the many utensils that can be made for the kitchen and how to approach making wood kitchenware with the lathe as the primary tool for design. Other machines and tools will be used to further the process and embellish the class projects. Students will be assisted in understanding how to push the limits of problematic processes – that of harnessed, yield interesting design potential and dramatic effect. Andrew will show how he uses the waste of many of his turnings to become other possible products, and demonstrate how he uses flame and coloring techniques to enhance the look and feel of kitchenware. As part of the class many important details will be discussed and demonstrated for the aesthetics and the integrity of projects. Andrew will work with each student at his or her abilities and knowledge of the lathe no matter if they are seasoned, or new to the craft. A brief look into traditional ways of making kitchenware, such as with carving or handwork, will allow the students who prefer a traditional look and feel to their projects. A tutorial on spindle turning and demonstrations on hollowing out scoops with both side grain and end grain will be given. Instruction will include topics that may arise naturally due to evolving ideas from the class which are a part of the learning process.
