TURNING AND COLORING
A WIDE-RIM BOWL,
WITH STEWART FURINi
The demo will cover work-holding methods, chucking, pull-cutting with the bowl gouge, and creating a pleasing ogee shape and foot design. Furini will also cover things to consider when shaping the rim before any texturing and coloring is done. A selection of coloring techniques--some requiring no special equipment-- will be shown before the inside of the bowl is turned and finished.

SAT., JAN. 28
SIMPLE SEGMENTED TURNING,
WITH DAVID HEIM
This is a two-day workshop in which students make at least one piece from two contrasting woods glued together and shaped. Students will fine-tune the shape of the wood pieces and glue them together to form the turning blank then mount the blank on the lathe and shape the outside of the vase. Various tools will be used to hollow the inside. Once students have finished hollowing and sanding the vase, they will apply a finish to complete the project.
Where: Brookfield Craft Center, 286 Whisconier Road, Brookfield.
