Tryon Arts and Crafts School will host a one-day beginning to intermediate wood-turning workshop with instructor Chris Carroll on Saturday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The workshop will be held at the craft school located on Harmon Field Road.
Students will learn how to use a lathe and other tools to create a one-of-a-kind wood bowl. Students should bring a lunch. Materials will be supplied by the instructor. The minimum age to participate is 14 years old.
Carroll started his business, Carroll Woodcrafts Unlimited, in 2010 at the Mill Spring business incubator at the Polk County Ag Center. He quickly outgrew the space at the incubator and has moved into a studio on his own property in Tryon. Carroll specializes in custom furniture, designing elaborate birdhouses and turned wood bowls. He is devoted to using local materials, so he has established contacts with local tree haulers and tradesmen, trading his time and skills for raw materials and labor.

Advance registration for all workshops is required. For more information about the instructor or workshop, including tuition and supply costs, contact Tryon Arts & Crafts School at 828-859-8323 or tryonartsandcrafts@windstream.net. More details and examples of projects are available on the Tryon Arts and Crafts School website, www.TryonArtsandCrafts.org.
