Long hair must be tied back and jewelry should not be worn. Additional protective gear will be provided as needed. Ear plugs are recommended for hearing protection and dust masks are also useful.
About the instructor: John Sowell has been turning items for function and whimsy for about 12 years. He is primarily self taught but has studied books, videos, workshops, symposia and formal training from professional turners such as Glenn Lucas, Jimmy Clewes, Rudy Lopez and David Ellsworth.
