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.

Required Tools

All required tools/materials are provided by your instructor and North House and will be available once the course begins.
