Graeme Priddle & Melissa Engler - Ammonite Bowl

This demonstration will cover the design and influences behind these bowls. We will discuss wood selection, preparation and drying. Then go on to basic bowl turning techniques, tool selection, sharpening and safety.

Then we will cover low relief carving and surface embellishment with rotary tools and wood burners, and coloring with acrylic paint, milk paint and paste wax application.
