Concept: This unconventional turning class will think about the lathe and the works that come off it in new ways. How do you develop an idea on the fly and bring it to fruition? Your openness to experimentation will be fundamental. You will be encouraged to look for ideas while turning, in casual doodling, and even taking snippets of other people’s ideas. This work-shop will be a laboratory for working out new ideas, as we experiment with many possible avenues of exploration and inspiration. Traditional and experimental techniques, working on and off the lathe, contemporary design, humor, unusual subject matter—nothing is off limits and everything is fodder for the creative process.

Media & Techniques: Wood, paint and other media.

Activities: Mornings will be open to drawing, doodling, building temporary structures on and off the lathe, and sharing these with others, followed by hands-on instruction in the shop.

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

Faculty: Michael Brolly is a woodturning artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, whose lathe-turned objects have been exhibited all over the country and the world. Recently, his mid-career retrospective exhibits, “Cradle to Cradle” and “Serious Play”, toured the country highlighting his unique and often humorous woodturning style. A self-taught woodturner, Michael recently received an MFA in furniture/crafts from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. www.michaelbrolly.com
