Turning Platters

June, 30 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM


[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”19″ display=”basic_thumbnail”]This beginner-friendly turning class will focus on techniques used for turning thin plates and platters, without using a vacuum chuck or fancy jigs. Each student will make two platters of different sizes and we will cover a variety of finishing options to customize your work.

You will learn:

  • basic lathe safety and tools
  • proper tool use for shaping and hollowing
  • establishing and embellishing your rim
  • sanding on the lathe
  • finishing options

Prerequisite: None. Open to all skill levels.

Tools required: Tool kit supplied by the school.

Please bring ear and eye protection and a safety mask.

Class size: Maximum 6.

Please read and understand our Refund and Cancellation policies. By making payment you acknowledge that you have read and understand these policies.

PLEASE NOTE: In addition to our standard class policies, we are taking additional precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. Effective May 26, 2020:

  • We will be strictly limiting class sizes to no more than eight (8) students to allow for adequate distancing between class participants.
  • All benches and shared tools will be sanitized before and after each class.
  • All students, instructors, and staff are required to wear a properly-fitted mask that securely covers the nose and mouth while inside the school.
  • When entering the school, all students, instructors, and staff will have their temperature checked. Anyone with a temperature above 100.3 will not be allowed to enter the building.
  • Anyone exhibiting any cold or flu-like symptoms—even if it is believed to be allergy-related—will not be allowed to enter the building.

Thank you for your understanding.
