Free Woodturning Demos: The Art of the Woodturner - Arnold Arboretum

Saturday, October 19, 2019 -
Sunday, October 20, 2019

Woodturning Demonstrations:
11am, 1pm, 3pm in the Hunnewell Building;
All day on the Hunnewell Lawn

With the use of a lathe, woodturners turn out practical, functional pieces or turn to the purely aesthetic. Each craftsman brings their own personal artistic vision to the objects they create, and the pieces in maple, cherry, and other wood from far and near (look for work turned from Arnold Arboretum deaccessioned trees), offer a unique look at the personality within the wood itself.

The Association of Revolutionary Turners (ART), Central New England Woodturners, Massachusetts South Shore Woodturners, as well as Harvard Woodturning students, have come together for the fifth year for this Arnold Arboretum exhibition and will bring their own creativity and technical expertise, displaying more than 60 unique pieces for utilitarian use and aesthetic enjoyment. Join us as members demonstrate their skill working the lathe throughout the weekend.

Additional Woodturning exhibition in the Hunnewell Visitor Center, Oct. 10-Nov. 26.

Free, public invited.
