Mark's Plan for the Day - click to open/close

“I would like to demo the following items, but included in all of them I comment on the historical aspects of the designs, elements that can change and such like, texturing, simple carved and other decorative aspects that may be used.

I will of course be course be exploring the technical aspects of tool use, getting better cuts, problem solving and such like I tackle each project.

A lidded form - bowl grain orientation - using a coring tool to take out the central section which in turn becomes the lid of the form.

Turning square edge work - how to tackle such projects and how to incorporate other elements to add more visual drama

A classic oriental-style  box

Hollow forms made easy This picks up on the core techniques used on the box, but we need to look at various ways and implications of creating an integral or added on top section.”


Tickets £15 (£12 in advance)

includes light lunch snack, tea, coffee and soft drinks.
