Turning the Wooden Bowl: Marginalized Genders Session

Course Overview

Come and make wood shavings fly as you learn how to create wooden bowls on the electric lathe. Students will explore the form and function of this age-old craft while learning about lathe use and terminology. Paper birch from the North Shore will be used for the bowl blanks and students will make anywhere from 3-8 bowls! Examples of finished bowls will be provided as references. The course includes a discussion of finishing techniques, including food-safe paints and oils. Students will be able to bring home their birch bowls for everyday use in the kitchen or as unique pieces to display. The materials fee includes all wood for projects plus the use of individual lathes and set of tools. By request, this class is for people of marginalized genders including women (cis & trans), non-binary folks and trans-men. The learning space will be centered on collective sharing, individual growth, and a supportive environment.

North House is looking forward to hosting this course on campus in the safest way possible. As recommended by our HVAC consultants, we have increased air ventilation and installed an air filtration system. We perform extra cleaning of campus and are keeping class sizes small in our largest classrooms. Students must participate in a daily health screening and temperature check, agree to wear a mask at all times on campus, and to practice social distancing of 6 feet, as well as adhere to other safety protocols in some cases. See the full details of our COVID-19 protocols here.
