Classes Opend June 2020 with Special Considerations
My studio is located in Tampa, Florida only minutes from the Busch Gardens / Adventure Island area which offers numerous options for accommodations. About 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport. My studio is air-conditioned and heated, though heat is seldom needed. There are four full size lathes: Powermatic, Jet, Woodfast and a Robust American Beauty. All turning and hollowing tools and equipment are provided and there are many specialty tools to try.
I have no set course curriculum. I consult with students prior to workshops to design a custom class plan tailored to a student's interests. There are many options for all levels, beginners wanting to build strong foundation skills; and more advanced individuals looking to take their ability to a higher level. Class size can be one-on-one to a maximum of four students which allows me to provide each student lots of personal attention.
Cost for a 3 day class is $500 includes lunch and all the wood you will need. Shorter or longer sessions are an option.
By far hands-on learning is the best way to refine your skills…. Just a small adjustment in tool position or technique can make all the difference
Please come join me, I promise you a fun skill building experience
