Students will operate the lathe while transitioning from basic spindle work to the completion of their very own wooden bowl. Students are responsible for providing their own face-shield. All other materials and tools are provided. Alan Hark has been teaching woodturning at local institutions such as Harvard University and the Cambridge Center for Adult Education for the past 15 years. - To participate in any class, children less than 18 years of age must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian during the entire event.
