What you'll do

Regarding Covid: I am fully vaccinated and I expect that you have have been vaccinated too.

I can take up to 2 people (5% off for 2) per class and we will make ONE wood bowl in about 3+ hours. I will start by showing a brief video overview of what we will be doing, followed by safety instructions before we dive in.

No prior experience is required. I provide active hands-on instruction, demonstrations and enthusiastic encouragement. You will make all the creative decisions of wood type, bowl shape and size etc. My goal is for you to do 90% of the work.

I offer a selection of woods to choose from including locally harvested cherry, maple, and other hardwoods purchased from me directly on the day of the class.

NOTE! I can schedule this event any time or day - just let me know what day or time you want.

Other things to note:
Plan on getting covered in shavings! Wear work clothes and roll up long sleeves, long hair must be tied back. I will provide all safety equipment and advice. A materials fee of $12 to $30 covers the wood blank - I take cash, Venmo PayPal or credit/debit.

I have been a wood worker for over 40 years and have a fine arts degree in woodworking and photography. I have made furniture for many years and my home is filled with it. Over the last 18 years or so, I've been doing a lot of wood turning - making artworks and wooden bowls. I recently acquired a new state of the art lathe that makes the work go easier for students. I also have a lot of high quality gouges and sanding/finishing tools.
Also, ask about my home made blueberry jam - $8/jar.

Bought experience as a Christmas gift for my husband. We both really enjoyed the process of making the bowl and the instruction supplied by Guy. Although we were both complete beginners, he was patient and encouraging, which made us feel more confident. In the end, we completed a beautiful keepsake and had an enjoyable experience.

Guy met us at the door and immediately put us both at ease with his friendly and warm welcome. The entire experience was interesting, fun and we always felt safe and in knowledgeable and experienced hands at all times. Highly recommend for everyone whether you have a love for woodworking or never tried anything like this before.

Guy is an amazing storyteller and a great instructor. He helped us create a beautiful bowl from start to finish. The experience was exactly the right amount of challenge and fun, knowing that we’re both beginners. Would definitely recommend for anyone to try.

Guy’s experience is both fun & informative! I surprised my boyfriend with the class for his birthday and we both enjoyed it immensely. Guy is a wonderful teacher with an abundance of knowledge to pass along. I highly recommend taking this class with Guy, you won’t be disappointed with this unique experience!

As total bowl turning novices, we had a great time turning our first bowl with Guy. He clearly explains the techniques and safety items. We finished with a beautiful maple bowl! Thanks!
