Join us for an exclusive, Road Scholar-only week of creativity at Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program in Williamsburg, Mass.! Feed your creative spirit in a practical wood-turning workshop. Learn the basics of working on a lathe, along with the use and care of wood tools and options for finishes. Through step-by-step instruction, create simple bowls and utensils or elegant turned vessels. Enjoy an opportunity to experiment with woods such as ash, poplar, walnut, and cherry — no previous woodworking experience is required. We’ll cap off the week with a student art show and wine-and-cheese reception!
