Concept: You may have learned the hard way that without a real understanding of all the variables and forces involved with holding a tool up to a spinning piece of wood, the lathe can be very frustrating and confusing. Why struggle and miss out on the delights and amazing creative potential that turning has to offer? In this class, students will quickly develop the critical “feel” and awareness for what the right tool properly sharpened and used in the right manner can accomplish with ease. Regardless of your experience, this class is for students who would like to become more comfortable at the lathe and take full advantage of the creative capabilities that effective turning offers.

Media & Techniques: Green and dry wood; spindle and face-plate (bowl) turning techniques.

Activities: Each day offers a series of demonstrations, short exercises, open turning time and plenty of one-on-one instruction, allowing students to experience a wide spectrum of turning applications.

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

Faculty: Michael Mocho has spent the last 32 years as a professional craftsman and instructor. He teaches at many of the top craft schools and woodturning symposia across the US, and was selected for the 2004 International Turning Exchange residency at the Woodturning Center in Philadelphia. He serves on the Curriculum Committee for the American Association of Woodturners, and his furniture and turned works are in many private and public collections.
