Beginning, intermediate, twist pen woodturning classes slated
Tom Larson, experienced wood crafter, will offer the following beginners and intermediate classes in woodturning:
• Beginners: 6-10 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7.
Learn the basics or practice a new technique. Larson is happy to customize a class. Learn about basic spindle work with several types of cuts using a variety of chisels and go home with a finished piece.
• Intermediate: 6-10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8.
This session will be particularly useful for the newer turner who wants to build and practice their turning skill. Safety, lathe operation, tools and sharpening will be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will turn a chunk of wood into a bowl.
Fee is $83 per class, which includes all supplies. Register for one or both classes. Bring a safety helmet, dust mask and tools, if you have them.
Larson is also offering a new class from 6-9:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, where students will make and finish a lathe turned twist pen. Class fee is $65 and includes shop fees.
All classes are held at the instructor’s shop in Brainerd. Directions will be provided upon registration.
Pre-registration is required. Contact Pequot Lakes Community Education at 568-9200.
