Shared Adventures in Woodturning

Mar 18 - 20, 2016 Begins in 1 month
with Jerry Kermode

Enjoy an opportunity to learn the ancient craft of woodturning during this weekend of hands-on instruction in technique and philosophy. Bring together the thrill of creating with the sensuality of working with wood, as you peel away the exterior to find the art within. Deepen your understanding of how the fibers lie within the wood and how the chisel slices those fibers. Learn to make utilitarian items in which the spirit of the wood and your own spirit commingle.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
