Precise woodturning technique and developing fine form are the cornerstones of my teaching philosophy; there is nothing more satisfying than being able to turn a beautiful form with gorgeous lines! Students of every skill level will received personalized attention to address their specific needs.
During each workshop I cover safety, use of tools, sharpening and grinding, sanding and finishing, as well as the projects students would like to turn. (Some suggested topics: bowls, platters, boxes, goblets, hollow forms, spindlework). Tips and demonstrations of embellishment techniques such as gilding, dyeing, pyrography, painting, inlay, and adding mixed media are also available.
Please contact me to schedule a class at your facility or with your group. I also offer personalized instruction at individual tuition to help you get started in woodturning, improve your cutting technique, and can assist you in developing your own artistic vision. (Individual tuition is $150/day which includes a home-cooked lunch and all class supplies, working in my studio in beautiful Cheyenne, Wyoming).
