Masters at Work: Woodturning Workshop & Exhibit


Woodturning Demonstrations Will Introduce Visitors to the Art of the Forest

Visitors to the Forest Heritage Center are in for a treat during the Masters at Work: Empty Bowls Woodturning Workshop September 11-12 as Master Woodturners use their lathes to create unique works of wood art from start to finish. The demonstrations will be held Friday and Saturday, Sept. 11 and 12 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Museum guests are invited to view the gallery until Oct. 18. Following the exhibit, pieces will be donated to the Empty Bowls program to help in the fight to end hunger. The Masters at Work Woodturning Workshop & Exhibit is free to the public.

The Forest Heritage Center’s outdoor deck will provide the perfect backdrop to showcase the art of the forest. The sights and sounds of woodturning will fill the outdoor space as woodturners work with lathes and hand tools to uncover the art that is hidden within the raw pieces of wood. Guests will enjoy discovering some of the technical and artistic reasoning behind the pieces while making connections with artists as well as fellow wood art enthusiasts.
