Woodturning offers a lifetime of possibilities.  This craft is as useful to artists as it is to furniture makers.  It’s a compelling craft full of as many challenges as it has rewards.  A good start is to have a guide early on who can teach you the best ways to approach woodturning.  What to avoid is as important as what works best.  Your progress, satisfaction and indeed your safety can depend on it.  Many who are self taught habitually repeat easily avoided mistakes.  Lessons with an experienced woodturner can guide the novice turner through the thorny process of coaxing pleasant forms from common woods.

Guest instructor Clint Stevens  is an experienced woodturner and instructor who emphasizes a hassle free, safe and encouraging learning atmosphere in his classes.  These carefully designed classes are perfect for inexperienced turners. You will learn about the lathe, its accessories and the tools used to shape wood. Students will watch demonstrations, then apply what they have learned to independent work overseen and guided by the instructor.
