Ade is running two 1 day courses.


Wednesday: Turn your first bowl.

You will be turning your bowl on an historic Viking style bowl lathe. There will be lots of time for you to develop and practise new skills. Whilst the main focus of the workshop will be about process and safe technique you should still look forward to producing your first bowl to take home with you at the end of the day. This will be a perfect sized bowl for you to eat your breakfast out of every morning, or your hot soup at lunch or your curry at the end of the day! By the end of this workshop you should feel confident to be able to have a go on a lathe on your own at home. 

Adults only, or over 16 when accompanied by a paying adult.


Thursday: Turning handled bowls.

This workshop is suitable for bowl turners that are comfortable turning ‘normal’ eating bowls and already have a number of bowls that they are happy with under their belt. 

An introduction to turning bowls with handles. These have many names such as porringers, quaichs or Snibbskal (eared bowl) and are a little more challenging to turn. We will explore some new techniques to make turning bowls with handles a reality. 

All tools and materials are provided but you may bring your own if you have them and we can advise on their suitability.

Adults only, or over 16 when accompanied by a paying adult.
