There are no specific workshop dates scheduled at this time. I try to work with student’s schedules and my availability to provide options in scheduling. Please contact me for available dates.
I have no set course curriculum but prefer to consult with students prior to workshops to design a custom workshop tailored to each individual’s needs.
Bowl turning or hollowing there are many options for beginners wanting to build a strong foundation of basic skills to more advanced individuals looking to take their current ability to a higher level. The cost for a three day workshop is $500 including lunch each day. Shorter or longer sessions are sometimes possible.
Some workshop ideas
From basic skills to turning wing bowls, and winged hollow vessels, thin-walled bowls to maximize warping, thin translucent Norfolk Island Pine, Palm, warped thin-stem goblets, square–to-round bowls, vases and hollow vessels, these are just a few possibilities.
Class size can be one-on- one to a maximum of four students. There is no substitute for hands-on learning…. Just a small adjustment in tool position or technique can make all the difference. Keeping the number of students low allows me to provide each individual with lots of personal attention.
Location & Accommodations
My studio is located in Tampa Florida only minutes from the Busch Gardens – Adventure Island area offering numerous options for accommodations. If you choose to stay in this area I can provide daily transportation to and from classes (about a 10 to 15 minute drive). I am glad to provide a list of hotels in my area.
Studio & Equipment
Studio is air-conditioned and heated (heat…. is not often needed). There are four full size lathes; Powermatic, Jet, Woodfast and a Robust American beauty. All turning and hollowing tools and equipment is provided and many specialty tools as well.
