Masterclasses

As a trial addition to our existing training workshops, we are running a two day / two tutor “masterclass” at the Max Carey Trust – The Mill, Portishead (near Bristol) on the 11th & 12th of April 2020.

The tutors will be Mick Hanbury and Tracy Owen and the subject will be a creative experience in turned – textured – coloured platters. The goal of this course is for members to take their woodturning imaginations to a new level whilst enhancing their skills of turning, texturing and coloring.

This master class, will explores techniques for creating textural elements and colour on a turned platter.  Members will turn platters with a focus on designs that highlight these elements. Participants will gain an understanding of the processes required to be creative in the use of colouring techniques to show the effects created with layering textures and painted elements.

Previous experience of turning platters is required.

There is an opportunity for all to enjoy a relaxed evening meal with the tutors and there is a ‘Travelodge’ close by for members who wish to stay overnight.

The AWGB is part funding this masterclass so it will only cost you £75.

At that point, payment will be due and is only refundable at the discretion of the AWGB should you later cancel your booking or fail to attend the masterclass.
