THE BOWL GATHERING
The Bowl Gathering is a small green woodworking festival in celebration of the wooden bowl and related craft. We have a range of experienced instructors and demonstrators coming from around the UK and abroad.
The Bowl Gathering will be a chance to meet and share skills with some of the best bowl turners around, there will be daily workshops in turning on lathes, and carving bowls with adzes and gouges. There will also be forging courses and demonstrations, helping folk to gain the skills needed to make their own tools. Children and families are welcome., dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a lead.
There will be cooking facilities on site in the form of bbqs and fires, and there will also be a food stall selling hot food for breakfast lunch and dinner.
Parking will be available on site, either along the track right next to the event, or in the overflow carpark down at the farm. Either way, you will be able to drive to the edge of the site and unload your stuff before parking for the weekend.
Lathes and tools will be available to use during courses, but please bring your own lathe or carving equipment to use in your own time if you have access to one. The teaching areas will be covered, but if you have a small shelter to cover your own lathe, please bring it along.
WEEKEND COURSES AND PREFEST COURSES
Courses during the weekend will be 3 hours in length and cost £20. To give everyone the chance to try a few different skills, we will have several instructors teaching different courses at various levels. Weekend courses are available to book on the day. There will also be lathes available to rent for £10 per 3 hr slot including a mandrel.
There are also a limited number of pre-fest courses available that will run from 1 to 2 days. these courses present an amazing opportunity to get some real, in depth knowledge from our instructors over 1 or 2 days. Prefest courses range in price from £80 to £240.
