VikingK23 Viking Sunset Bowl with Nick Agar

November, 13 - November, 15 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM MST


Woodturning meets art in this stunning, multi-textured project designed by master woodturner Nick Agar and nicknamed “Viking Sunset Bowl.”

As Nick’s signature design, this bowl combines his interest in hollow forms, large diameters, and surface enhancement. A truly stunning piece, the bowl merges the elegant finish of turned wood with elaborate surface treatments that look like ancient pewter.

And, in three incredible days, Nick will guide you through the process of turning and embellishing a Viking Sunset Bowl of your own.

To start, Nick will coach you through the proper use of lathe tools for making the bowl, including turning and shaping. Then we will delve into the wide world of embellishments, as Nick demonstrates his techniques for adding texture and artistic features to the surface of the bowl. 

As a final step, Nick will teach us an intriguing process for adding color that makes the outer rim of the bowl look like metal. The finished piece will be a one-of-a-kind work of art for you to treasure.

You will learn:

·        Turning the bowl to the proper shape
·        Detailed shaping
·        Texturing
·        Artistic embellishments
·        Adding color
·        Mixing color
·        Finishing
