Woodturning 101 with Greg Strange

Woodturning is the fine art of creating beauty on a simple lathe. Easton's very own GREG STRANGE will briefly describe the craft and techniques he uses to produce unique functional art from locally sourced wood. He will create small pieces at the presentation with wood salvaged from historic buildings and sites of Easton!
 
In Greg's own words:
I have always loved wood and often incorporated it into houses  that I have been designing and building for thirty years.  About a decade ago I stumbled into the art of woodturning.  I love highlighting the natural characteristics found in wood….be they grain, color, texture and even disease.  I travel the eastern US selling and showing at art festivals and have been lucky to to have many of my pieces in private and corporate collections.

Free and open to all - a not-to-be-missed event!
