“Woodturning” is the process through which a chunk of wood is spun around by a machine called a lathe, and students use specially sharpened gouges to cut the wood into round cylindrical shapes, orbs, or bowls at high speeds. This process is used to make decorative designs on chair legs, make bowls from a single log, and create endless decorative objects or precision components.

This is both scary and exhilarating! And, it can take years and years of practice to get really good at — but the basics can easily be learned in an afternoon.

Beginners are welcome – this class is open to women and gender expansive folks* age 18+.

Meet your Instructor, Anne Ogg!

*SkillSet welcomes humans of all genders to attend our workshops.
