Turn Up & Have Fun | Graeme Priddle & Melissa Engler

February 11 - February 15 | 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Learn to Turn, Carve and Color 

This class will cover a wide range of subjects and possibilities using basic faceplate and spindle turning techniques – don’t worry if you don’t know how to do this, we will show you!

As forms are made you will learn how to do a myriad of surface embellishment techniques introduced to personalize and enhance your pieces.  Some of the things you will learn will include:

  • woodburning
  • rotary/hand carving,
  • colouring with acrylic and milk paints.

There will be an emphasis on inspiration, design and exploring a multitude of possibilities, as opposed to finishing set projects.

You will be able to choose from a diverse range of projects to suit all skill levels or you may wish to refine or expand on the possibilities of what you are already doing.

Suitable for skill levels 

You will work in a focused, friendly environment.

Most important!!!!     Bring an open mind, a sense of humour and some current turnings or creations for show and tell if you have them.
