Woodturning: Hollow Forms

John Kingsley

Turning a hollow form is one of the signature skills of a woodturner, usually achieved after a great deal of time and experience. Lucky for our students, the school has made this easy to learn, using the hollow turning equipment we have in-house. Students will create a thin walled bowl or small vase, depending on how they progress, unique to them. Come try it out, have a blast, and be amazed!
