Workshop : Wood Turning - Weed Pots

Sunday February 25, 2018

10:00am - 4:00pm

$90 + $15 materials fee payable in class 

To enroll in this class, visit the Eliot School's registration page.  Reference Course # AW898

Learn various turning techniques to make one or more decorative pots. Weed pots are tiny vessels made to hold blades of grass, dandelions, or other small-stemmed findings. They can’t hold water, so beauty can be found in the impermanence of the natural treasures you place in them. A variety of wood species will be provided, however students may bring their own wood with approval. No prior turning experience necessary, all levels welcome
