Tuition: $1095     ARAC Actual Cost: $1495     Studio Fee: $100

Code: W0305

Enrollment Limit 8

Concept: This course offers students the opportunity to work with two instructors with differing yet balanced approaches. Todd’s manufacturing engineering background coupled with Hayley’s art and design training comprise over 50 years of combined woodturning experience. The class provides significant time to develop and advance skills both on and off the lathe. The first week will focus on the understanding and utilization of wood, improving turning technique, and learning new surface treatment possibilities through sample boards and sample pieces. Emphasis will be placed on experimentation. The second week will focus on the design and creation of a finished “master work,” incorporating techniques developed in the first week.

Media & Techniques: Green and dry wood; open- and closed-form turning techniques, rotary burr textures, burning, bleaching and coloring.

Activities: There will be slide lectures, demonstrations and lots of one-on-one attention.

Skill level: Levels III - IV (Minimum Skill Level III)

Faculty: Todd Hoyer attended Arizona State University, majoring in manufacturing engineering. Hayley Smith has a BA in art education from the University of Wales. Both have lectured

and conducted classes throughout the US, Australia, Canada, Ireland and the UK. Both have works in museums, including the Detroit Institute of Art, Museum of Art & Design, New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
