Það sem verður gert

COURSE OUTLINE
This a 2 hour sampler course in woodturning. Each student has a lathe and a set of tools. Brid my wife, is also a woodturner will run the session with me so the student teacher ratio is really low. This course is structured course which takes people with no previous experience and builds their skill and confidence to able to tackle a project which they take home with them . This is really enjoyable course for the student and they will surpass their expectations on what they will achieve. The emphasis through is correct and safe use of each tool for maximum cutting efficiency to produce convex and concave curves.
In detail we want the student to
1. Develop your technical knowledge, building upon the techniques to successfully cut concave and convex curves.
2. Develop the creativity that is individual to them
3. Develop their critical judgement when you look at turned work
4. Give some contextual knowledge to assess a piece of work
These four elements need to be integrated, so that there is a genuine balance. The student is not just making work – we ant them to get an appreciation of the craft within the entire spectrum of the contemporary Decorative Arts.
Woodturning – like any other craft skill – is a lifelong pursuit. You can produce objects within a few short hours, but to really understand the craft will take a minimum of 10,000 hours.

What a fantastic experience. Ambrose was so knowledgable and passionate about wood turning and very keen to share his experience. From the moment we arrived we were made feel welcome and put at our ease. He explained all processes involved in turning a piece of wood into art and when we were done,we had produced two masterpieces (possibly only in my eyes😬). I couldn’t recommend this experience highly enough. Ambrose is a pure professional and an absolute gent. DO THIS you honestly will love it.

This experience is indeed a rare finding! Ambrose was very friendly and helpful. It was our first woodturning experience and we didn't really expect that we would manage to create something ourselves that could be taken home. Ambrose explained the meaning of every tool, showed the process step by step and was very attentive to details. We really appreciate this unique experience and the special approach Ambrose has. We definitely recommend this experience as it is something different which can even become a great hobby going further.

A magical wood-shop hidden away behind their own house, this was truly a fantastic experience. Myself and my partner were (ha and still are!) complete novices, but in the space of two hours, Ambrose had us create pieces that will take pride of place in our home! The time flew and was peppered with interesting stories and was so immersive and hands on. Ambrose managed to turn every mistake into a feature on our pieces. I really can’t recommend this experience highly enough, as not only do they teach students and create experiences, they also manufacture bespoke made to order pieces. Note that this isn’t a sales pitch type of experience as you can see their enthusiasm for the craft shines through.The fact that Ambrose has the ability to distill over 25 years experience into a fun easy class shows true craft! Happily recommend this to anyone and can’t wait to do it again next time we are in town.
