Learn the Basics of Woodturning
Thursdays – October 12 and 26 6 – 9 pm Fridays – October 6, 13, 20 or 27 9 – noon
Tuition: $60/includes basic materials and great instruction!
With a maximum of six students per class, each student will receive the utmost in personal attention and are tailored to the requirements of the student – whether just beginning or advancing skills. This 3 hour class will emphasize tool technique, and sharpening.
The best way to learn is to “do it”, not talk about it and this is possible due to the small number of students (Limited to 6).
The classes are hands-on and are tailored to the need of the individual with each student working on their own lathe. Projects are whatever you want to do – with wood being the limiting factor.
Intro to Woodworking
0r it could be a Humidor or place to keep your treasures, and learn basic woodworking skills from a Master Craftsman. This basic woodworking class introduces you to the tools at Anvil and the way we “do business” but instead of just hearing about it – you get to make something then
take it home and finish it the way you want to.
And then when you want to work on your own project – you know what is available and how to use the tools. Cost is $60 for a 3 hour class.
Thursday: 6 – 9 pm Saturday: 9 – noon Oct 5 or 12, Nov 2 or 9 Oct 14 or 21 and Nov 5 or 11
