    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 skill set is sufficient to benefit from a Signature Course, we’d recommend that you participate in a Woodturning 101 Woodturning Workshop prior to enrolling in a Signature Workshop. Doing so will better prepare you for the more advanced techniques and projects you will encounter in Signature Classes so that you don't feel like you're "in over your head".
    Nick Agar, England, has inspired many woodturners with his work and has traveled across the world to demonstrate and teach his skills. In the USA, Nick has been a main demonstrator at the AAW and Utah symposiums. Inspired by organic forms, pottery, and his natural surroundings, he specializes in hollow forms, large diameter work, and surface enhancement. He is renowned for his wall sculptures in particular. His award-winning work often incorporates carving, coloring with dyes, texturing and wood burning. With more than 25 years experience he has a great understanding of his medium.
