Course Description

Banksia Pods are grown on trees in Southwestern Australia and are commonly used in woodturning to make unique objects. In this class we will use the Banskia Pods to turn a small ornamental vase. The seed cavities present in the pods create new challenges but also creative opportunities for woodturners. Each participant in the class will learn how to prep the blank and will make their own piece using spindle turning and hollowing techniques.
