Have you ever seen wooden bowls and wanted to create your own designs for your home or as gifts? Maybe you’ve acquired a lathe and aren’t sure how to use it … or you’re a bit rusty and need a refresher. This class will provide instruction on using the wood lathe, lathe safety, turning tools, project design, and turning wooden bowls from both green and dried wood blanks. Upon completion, you will have the knowledge and confidence to begin exploring other shapes and creations. The instruction and demonstration portion of this course will be provided virtually, allowing participants to join the sessions from the comfort of their own homes. To aid participants in applying the skills they learn, a “hands on” portion of the course will be provided via one-on-one virtual mentoring for participants who have access to a wood lathe, or via small group, in-person work sessions using the lathes in the Center’s Maker Studio.

This class meets in the Maker's Space & Mentor Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.


For participants in the onsite work sessions in the Center’s Maker Studio, a materials fee may apply, depending on projects selected ($25 on average).

The safety of our students, teachers, patrons, volunteers, and staff is our highest priority. A number of adjustments have been put in place to keep everyone safe for in-person classes at the Cultural Center. We are disinfecting public spaces frequently and have installed hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. To ensure the safety of those around you, please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and in other ways follow CDC guidelines while at the Cultural Center. Thank you!

You will need to be sure the Zoom app is installed on your device. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing a secure link to join the class.

You will be able to login 15 minutes before the class start time. We recommend logging in before the class starts to make sure you are settled in and ready to go when the class is set to begin.

If you are new to Zoom, please note that we will not be able to help with the app. It is strongly recommended that you navigate Zoom on your own before the class starts to get to know the mute and video settings. Try it out by talking with a friend or family member who has the Zoom app. The Cultural Center uses Zoom to conduct online classes, and I understand that the Zoom meeting will be recorded. By participating in the class, I consent to be recorded and place no restrictions on distribution of the recording.
