During this 2-day class we will learn the basics of bowl turning on a foot powered lathe. There will be demonstrations and discussions of axe skills, cutting techniques, hook tool forging and sharpening, handling and storing green wood, drying and finishing green wood bowls. Each participant will leave class with at least one bowl they made themselves.

NOTE: Students should be prepared for a physically demanding class that requires stamina, coordination, and physical strength. Students must be able to stand on one leg for extended periods of time and have the hand strength to open a sealed jar or swing an axe repeatedly. If there are questions about this or if students have injuries or physical limitations, please contact the Hearth School. All tools are provided.
