MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR 

Mark Gardner
Instructor
Mark started working in wood at the age of sixteen when he enrolled in a furniture making class with his father at the University of Cincinnati. Furniture making is a slow process, and the immediacy of turning was very attractive to Mark. After struggling on his own for several years, Mark took a class with John Jordan. He credits John for giving him a firm foundation of turning techniques. John’s passion and commitment to his work continues to inspire Mark.

An Intro to Turning & Bowl Making

A wonderful opportunity to learn to turn on a lathe with a great instructor in a comfortably paced class. Open to new turners, as well as those of all skill levels who would like to break bad turning habits and fortify their skill base.

Taught by renowned turner Mark Gardner you will have a fun week making beautiful bowls as well as skill-building projects such as platters.

This is a hands-on class.  Every student has their own brand new lathe (Jet Midi 1220) with a set of gouges.  Instruction covers everything from wood selection to finishing – so don’t worry if this is new to you.

This class is perfect for the beginner who is curious about learning how to use the lathe and is also very good for those who have been turning for a bit and want to add finesse and more technique to their skill base.

Some of the things you will learn about include how to:

  • Cut the blank rounds and mount wood onto the chuck
  • Sharpen and use gouges
  • Work with green wood and dried wood
  • Build control and finesse when turning bowls
  • Add surface texture and color both on and off the lathe

More importantly, you will make bowls of different sizes and styles such as side grain and end grain.  If time permits, we may be able to touch on various embellishment techniques.

Tools Needed:  If you have turning tools please bring them, if not the School provides a standing set of tools for each student.

Tuition: $820 per person
