  • Creative Woodworking - Bowl Turning Session I

    July 16 - 20
    9:00 am - 12:00 pm
    $210
    Turning a wooden bowl is a relatively quick process. Change happens fast. A serving bowl can turn into a pile of shavings on the floor almost before you’re aware that you just made a bowl disappear. This happens because it’s fun to make the shavings fly, and it’s a skill to know when to stop. Come and learn a new skill. Make it your turn this summer!
