1-2-1 Greenwood Courses: Learn the Art of Bowl Turning Using Traditional Techniques

Are you interested in exploring from an experienced woodworker the ancient craft of bowl turning using traditional techniques? Our 1-2-1 Greenwood Courses offer a unique opportunity to develop your skills and create beautiful handmade bowls. And of course, you will be under the guidance of our experienced instructor during the turning workshop.

Whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience in woodworking, our 1-Day Introduction to Pole-lathe Turning course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn the basics of bowl turning. During the course, I will coach on using a traditional pole lathe and hook tools to turn a wood bowl blank into a beautiful and functional bowl. Our course covers the essentials of bowl turning, including selecting the right wood for a bowl, creating a bowl blank*, and mounting it onto the lathe.

*To ensure that you have ample time to work on the lathe and hooks, I will provide a ready-to-mount bowl blank. If time permits, you can also turn a second bowl.
