In his Friday evening talk, John will discuss his “wavy” design style of turning. The meeting will begin at 7:45 p.m. on Friday, March 17 in 135 Basil Hall on the campus of St. John Fisher College.

We have two workshops scheduled with John Beaver. The first one will be a demo workshop on Saturday March 18, where John will show how he makes his wave bangles and bowls by turning an object, cutting it apart on a bandsaw and then adding other woods before reassembling it; and on Sunday March 19, there will be a hands-on workshop where John will help you make a version of his wave bowl.

Both workshops will be help at Isaac Heating, 50 Holleder Pkwy, Rochester, NY 14615
