Barb's Barn hosted a "Beginner's Day" to refine the skills of the newer turners

The instructors were Jed Donahue, Paul Mazuchowski, and Rich Sarama

With 5 students and 3 instructors, there was plenty of hands on time

Paul taught deep hollowing of vessels

All of the students made a round skew and a tool handle for it

All of the projects were designed to reinforce the tool handling skills

With only 5 students, there was plenty of one on one time with an instructor

The day was a great practice session for all skill levels
