Took a class at Marc Adams School June 15-19. The instructor Graeme Priddle from New Zealand was outstanding. I am brand new to turning, having just a midi lathe and turned a couple of pens.
The focus of the class was more on surface embellishment, carving, pyrography and stippling.
These were the first pieces I have made. It was nice to try a number of different tools, and so as I expand my skills I know what new “toys” I want to get.
Turning the ‘canoe’ was a new experience doing off center work.
