What you'll do

Regarding Covid: I am fully vaccinated and I expect that you have have been vaccinated and can show proof. I offer face shields, sanitizer and surgical gloves if you wish to use them.

I can take up to 2 people (booked separately) per class and we will make ONE wood bowl in about 2.5 hours. I will start by showing a brief video overview of what we will be doing, followed by safety instructions before we dive in. We will complete ONE finished bowl in about 2.5 hours of hands-on instruction.

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. I provide a variety of woods for the bowl you make. A materials fee of $12 to $30 covers the wood blank - I take cash or credit.

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 more powerful lathe that makes the work go easier for students. I also have a large range of gouges and sanding/finishing tools.
Also, ask about my home made blueberry jam - $7/jar.

We had a terrific time with Guy as he brought us step by step how to craft a wooden bowl in his workshop. As someone who had never seen a lathe in action before, it was almost magical.

We had a wonderful morning with Guy. He is a patient and gifted teacher and was completely committed to collaborating on crucial design elements, teaching the skills we needed and patiently directing us to be a part of every step of the creation. A great sense of humor too. We love our bowl and highly recommend this experience.

I am very grateful Guy offers this class. As a background note, I have no wood making experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the class! As a side note, I enjoyed stopping in nearby Bath and driving through surrounding Maine! Pretty!

My wife and I had a wonderful time with Guy. He really made it a hands-on experience for both of us and let us make the choices on what and how we wanted things to look. He really explained the process well and assisted when needed. We love our bowl. It’s a piece of work we will forever cherish. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested.
