    This six-hour, hands-on class is designed to equip participants with techniques needed to turn small, functional bowls. In addition to reviewing bowl turning techniques, the main focus will be tool control techniques used to finesse bowl forms into elegant works of art. Using only basic tools, we will explore many exercises designed to fine-tune your turning skills and foundational body movements to produce clean curves in your work.

    Eric Lofstrom Six Hour Demonstration:  Turning a Rice Bowl: Refined, Elegant, Functional

    Using basic bowl turning tools, this demonstration focuses on techniques to create a small, functional bowl with a pure curve. In addition to reviewing bowl turning techniques, attendees will gain tool control techniques used to finesse bowl forms into elegant works of art. This demonstration will showcase what basic tools and an understanding of tool control will allow you to do with a small piece of face-grain wood.

    Once you learn to turn a small bowl with flowing curves, you’ll be able to create elegant curves in any of your pieces!
