November 20, 2016 - Malcolm Zander


Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Cost: Free for current TWG members.  For guests and other interested persons: $50.00.  Resfreshments and lunch are included.

Description: Form, Design, Thin-walled Turning and Piercing

In the first half of this presentation, Malcolm will share his sense and knowledge of form and design. This is a talk with a very extensive slide presentation, which looks at different aspects of form. The goal is twofold:
  1. to develop an understanding of form and why it's important to us as wood artists, and
  2. to show where you can find new forms and ideas for your work.
The second half of the presentation will explore thin-wall turning, both cross-grain and end-grain, including videos of the techniques used in turning thin walls from dry wood and of the tools and techniques used for piercing.

There will be two short live lathe demonstrations, and a discussion of a number of Malcolm’s pieces and how they were made.

Location: Humber College's Centre for Trades & Technology.

Malcolm's website includes many photographs of his work.
