Working as an individual or in a pair, you will get straight to work crafting your bowl. Shaping the outside first, you will learn how to hold the chisel and steadily carve the wood as it spins on the lathe. You'll sand and smooth your bowl until it is beautiful then flip to carving out the inside, responding to the wood, shaping something truly unique. Once more you will sand your work, finishing it with food-grade oil or Danish Oil so that it can be used immediately. Note: Some pairs like to work on a bowl together and this is great. Just let Bronwyn know that two of you are attending; you can choose from making one bowl together or making two separate, but slightly smaller, ones. MORNING SESSIONS are available by appointment. Just message Bronwyn to open up a slot on the day you would like to attend.
All the safety gear, tools and wood needed for this experience are provided.
Participants will be working in the studio with me on my property. We are located close to the town of Deloraine and there are lovely walks nearby and, if there is time, we can have a stroll around the property and check out the off-grid cabin and vegetable garden.
The sessions are set at 1:30pm but you may prefer an earlier session. Some people like to come as a pair and work on their bowl together. This is the same price.
