Turning

Our wood turning workshops provide beginning and intermediate instruction in the art of taking a block of wood and literally turning it into something beautiful and functional. If you’ve never taken any turning classes – or it’s been awhile – you might want to start with our 6 hour intro class. Or delve right into our bowl or spindle turning classes and then use your newfound skills on our lathes at Open Shop.
