Turning plates on a pole lathe.
This two day workshop is suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced pole lathe turners.
On day one of the class, you will begin to learn how to source and prepare wood for plate turning and then the best practical techniques to turn a plate on a pole lathe.
Once you have turned your ﬁrst plate, you will spend the rest of the course improving your technique with further plate turning and learning about design, form and tool care.
The course will be led by internationally recognised pole lathe turner Owen Thomas, a professional greenwood worker and teacher.
Please note pole lathe turning can be physically demanding but there will be plenty of breaks during the course.
All tools and materials are provided but you are welcome to bring your own tools to use if you have them.
