Week 1 – Ecole Escoulen

7 October 2018Aiguines, France

First week at Ecole Escoulen wood turning school in France done. Started with the very basics in spindle turning. Being primarily a bowl turner it was good to learn some new techniques and also discover new tools like the Bedan.

Our lecturer for the week was Yann Marot who is a renowned turner and a very capable teacher. He is assisted by Laurent Niclot who thankfully translates the French when I am lost. And I am lost a lot!

We visited the woodturning museum in Aiguines as well as Yann’s studio.

The slide show shows the beautiful lake, my progress through the week, the museum and some of Yann’s work.
