Well rounding off my week is some teaching at George Foweraker's workshop.
Generally we have four students once or twice a month who come back regularly and build upon the skills that they have been practising, or to look in more depth at any tooling, design issues, colouring, texturing etc.
It is a great day and one of the most rewarding aspects of turning. Interacting with people and passing on my knowledge is very satisfying. Especially when people go away with a smile on their face.
The day involved spindle turning, bowl and hollowing finishing etc. Each student is given the opportunity to turn what they want and to explore their own direction.
Great fun and a good day had by all.
