Pat Carroll Woodturning



Over the years woodturning has developed into a beautiful and creative art form. With so many different styles of woodturning being practiced these days, there is an interest in looking outside the box of traditional woodturning.  I offer online tuition in bowl turning, spindle work and of course my main speciality, creating hollow forms. With texture and colour prevalent in woodturning today, let me show you how to take a piece of work to a different level with additional enhancements on and off the lathe. So, if you are a new comer to woodturning and would like to learn the fundamental basics or an advanced woodturner looking to try new techniques, please contact us at the email address below.

Please be advised students are responsible for their own technology and equipment. Camera views and internet connection must be adequate to receive the online tuition. Students must adhere to all safety requirements, i.e. Safety glasses or face shield, dust protection.
