    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".
