MASW is proud to once again host Eli from Israel for his fourth workshop here. This weeklong workshop will be full of learning methods and techniques in turning wood from the foundation to the highest level. Eli promises that anyone at any level will learn new and better techniques. The week will start with sharpening tools, such as the skew, convex bevel and all kinds of gouges including a double bevel, then how to use these sharp tools the right, effective and safe way. Eli will demonstrate turning between the centers, turning bowls, platters, boxes and hollow forms. Additionally, there will be discussions on how to turn in many different grain directions. Eli will discuss design, decoration, texturing, carving and coloring. There will be lots of hands-on practice with Eli at your side. He encourages students who have taken his class before to sign up again as he will teach those students new and different techniques. This is a true opportunity to spend time with one of the best turners in the world.
