Description

Looking to increase your knowledge of turning and design? The Bowls & Platters course has been designed to give woodturners a chance to build on turning techniques, with the focus on making bowls and platters.

What you will learn

Bowls and platters are a common place to start when you begin to turn. Our two day course has been designed to encompass the making of bowls and platters with a step-by-step guide. Within the process, you’ll cover tool use and techniques, lathe set up and speeds, sharpening, chucking systems, finishes and drying. In addition, your tutor will discuss and guide you on the correct selection and application of various finishes, as well as the sanding process.

By the end of the course, you will aim to turn three to four bowls in a variety of timbers from exotic to native.
