Beginning Woodturning- Woodturners gather at the Broken Bow High School carpentry shop to pass on their love of wood art to the community during Beginning Woodturning: A Foundation Course. This FREE class series is suitable for beginning to early intermediate students age 10 and older. Students may register for all six classes or choose classes on an individual basis. Students will begin with safety and will gain hands-on experience during the six classes. Each night will feature a short demonstration by a master woodturner and opportunities for students to learn to use a lathe under the supervision of an experienced turner. The “learn to turn” techniques that are taught in class will help students successfully transition to turning in their own shops and the class will help new woodturners develop relationships that will provide mentorship long after the classes have ended. Registration is required to turn but all are welcome to attend to watch demonstrations. No tools or prior woodturning knowledge is necessary to attend.
The Women’s Woodturning Retreat combines the functions and beauty of woodturning in a full weekend of hands-on experience. Each year, the cast of instructors include all female master woodturners. The cost is $75. Prior registration is required to attend. No tools or prior woodturning knowledge is necessary.
