North Carolina Furniture School Weekend Workshop: Introduction to Woodturning

Join us for two full days of woodturning! This course is designed to introduce you to the tools and techniques for safe, efficient woodturning. It’s a good course for beginners because it starts with the basics, provides a strong foundation in shop safety, and launches you right into fast and efficient woodturning. You will gain a solid understanding of common tooling, machine options and features, types of cuts, basic lathe joinery for furniture making, spindle turning, bowl turning, and more!

Both days will begin with a morning presentation and Q & A session, followed by hands-on learning at the lathe. Materials are included. Samples will include a bead and cove set, cylinders, cones, joinery samples, and a completed wooden bowl.

We look forward to meeting you in person, reserve your spot today – seats are limited and fill very quickly!

North Carolina Furniture School Master Class: Demystifying Design @ The North Carolina Furniture School
Nov 30 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Design is a pursuit. It is an abstract concept that many woodworkers struggle to truly understand. However, like its sibling music theory, visual design does have structure and can be understood. This class will introduce the framework of visual design and help to demystify some of the deeper abstract problems in the process. Participants will learn the terminology of the design language, and methodologies for creating better designs.

We will discuss some key concepts in design and help you to become conscious of them. We will show examples of furniture styles, design evolution, wood selection, and the impact of finishing on the success of a design. After lunch we will have design workshop to reinforce the concepts and teach you to apply the design framework with purpose and intent.

If you would like to bring a woodworking creation of your own, we can critique it with the group so you can gain a greater understanding of how the design in successful, and how it might be improved.

Lunch, refreshments, and materials will be provided.

This is one of our most popular classes, so book your spot early!
