Kirk’s signature style of woodturning is the culmination of many years of working with top professionals in our workshop program while adapting and personalizing methodology and turning techniques learned along the way. Kirks drive to find better, faster more efficient ways to achieve exceptional results has him constantly experimenting with new techniques while holding fast to those that are proven to work best.
One of the primary goals of the Kirk DeHeer Signature Course is to teach students how to perfect their woodturning skills through practice and patience built on a foundation of sound woodturning principles.
By the end of the week, every student should see dramatic improvements in their efficiency and confidence as a result of working through workshop projects and refining techniques along the way.
