Elementary classes:

The woodturning classes aim at giving a global preparation on the woodturning world.

During the elementary lessons, you will learn about:

  • wood, nature and composition;
  • how to cut a piece of wood in order to obtain a stable piece of wood;
  • woodturning types of machines;
  • different tools for woodturning;
  • first woodturning: turning  along the grain for making tops, goblets, elongated shaped objects;
  • second woodturning type: turning across the grain for the creation of plates, bowls.
  • Gouge sharpening systems.

The courses are usually organized on 2 days of 8 hours each, during which the student will be able to put into practice what he has learned, using the lathes available in the new classroom. Sometimes, we also organize ''evening classes'' from 5 to 9 pm that last 4 days.
