Traditional Pursuits: Pole Lathe Bowl Turning
The one day course will focus on the traditional techniques of turning a bowl from green wood using a pole lathe.
- Booking essential
Students will be shown how to select and split the wood using a tool called a ‘froe’, then process it using a shave horse and draw knife. Step by step instruction will be provided on correct chisel selection and technique to turn the inside and outside of the bowl. The pole lathes are pedal operated, which gives you a wonderful connection with the rhythm of wood removal.
