Making lidded containers on the lathe is one of the most satisfying projects in woodturning. A small lidded container is both functional and decorative and even a little magical. Decorative boxes can be transformed by the addition of color and texture. Students will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of techniques and materials for adding surface enhancement. Some of these include applying dye stains, lacquer and shellac with a spray gun, using milk paint and creating unique surface textures and patterns through wood burning. This is a project class as well as a technique class where the goal is to successfully complete a project that will hopefully inspire each student to continue developing their skills.
There is an annual, nonrefundable registration fee of $45.
