    Signature Workshops are designed for intermediate/advanced level students. A firm grasp of proper tool techniques, tool use and sharpening techniques is required of all participants. If you are unsure if your current skillset is sufficient to benefit from a Signature Course, we’d recommend that you participate in a Woodturning 201 Workshop prior to enrolling in a Signature Workshop. Doing so will better prepare you and help avoid a discouraging experience or being “in over your head”.
    Ashley Harwood currently lives in Charleston, SC, where she creates her work and teaches at her personal studio. She has demonstrated in a number of professional venues throughout the US and abroad, as far away as Australia. Her teaching focuses on fine spindle turning and the Push Cut method of bowl turning along with the 40/40 grind on a bowl gouge. She received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon with a focus in sculpture and installation, and her design aesthetic is heavily influenced by her background in glass blowing. Ashley focuses on works that are completed entirely on the lathe, without carving, texturing, or burning. She uses simple, classic forms along with distinctive design elements that result in an approachable body of work with a high level of craftsmanship. Primarily, she makes utilitarian bowls, ornaments, and jewelry. Her teaching has a strong focus on tool control and sharpening.
